A Motley Crew
ONE OF THE fears that dogged me at the beginning was that I would not meet the requirements for membership. Every night at a meeting, the definition of Alcoholics Anonymous was read, and I heard "the only requirement." But my sense of uniqueness told me that the requirements for me would be different and more difficult. I concluded that they would be sprung on me at some critical moment. Either I would pass with flying colors and be instantly upgraded, or I would have to pay somebody off in order to hang on to my AA membership.
