It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

A long-timer shares about his introduction to AA in New York City

The bars had closed for the night, and I was trying to find the entrance to the subway in order to return to the rooming house where I lived in Brooklyn. I was very drunk, as usual, and couldn't find the entrance.
