Ready to do this?
It was Sunday night. I had 28 days of treatment under my belt and it was time to attend my first AA meeting outside the treatment center. I headed over to St. Agnes parish in Butler, Wisconsin, where I had once attended grade school. It seemed like a good choice for my home group. When I arrived, I was greeted by a guy named John C., lovingly known as “Flat Top John” because of his crew cut hairstyle. I explained that I was there for the First Step meeting.
