A former drinker, gambler, and womanizer talks about his fifty-nine years in AA

Interviewed by Suzy P., from Upland, California, Dick C. shares his experience, strength and hope, nearly sixty years after his last drink.

"SUZY P.:" Dick, I really admire you. I know that you have not had a drink of alcohol since you were thirty-four years old and you are ninety-three now. You have been a really big inspiration to me and to many people at our meetings, and our Grapevine readers would really like to know your story. Can you tell us about your last drink?
