  10. TWENTY YEARS--GOOD JOB, GOD!!!

    Mike, this is a statistic: For every Recovering alcoholic who reaches 20 years of continuous sobriety, (18,000 EIGHTEEN THOUSAND!)
    have entered the rooms and left to drink some more.

    I am not a statistics proponent in AA, but this one has clout, and documentation from Dallas TX AA Inter Group...based on numbers of chips sold over a period of time

    CONGRATULATIONS to YOU and to GOD and to AA (Thanks for tipping me off, Mike! Would not have wanted to miss this party!
