A Fine Old Tree
Stoney S., a Cree from Regina, Saskatchewan, got sober on May 1, 1959
How were you introduced to AA?
Thank God for my ex-wife. She told me to phone this chap named Walter. But in fact, there were two Walters. My ex-wife knew they were in AA. I called the first Walter, but he wasn't home. I looked heavenward and said, "Thank God."
Then I tried the next guy. I'll be a son of a gun if he wasn't home. "I'll come and get you," he said. I walked into the meeting room and looked around very meekly to see what the hell was going on there. That's what I remember about the first meeting I went to I was soaked.
