Todd shares his Experience, Strength and Hope; it took more than 20 years of attending Alcoholics Anonymous before he became willing to do whatever it took to get and remain sober. Todd woke one morning with an almost sudden realization that he had to live the rest of his life sober, and so he began to do the work and work the program; he's been sober since.

Quotes
"I went to AA selfishly to manage my consequences and get what I wanted. The minute the meeting was over I went back to doing things the way I've always done them -- what's in it for me, I'll do it if I feel like it." 

"I'm incredibly grateful for Alcoholics Anonymous . . . if ever anyone earned the right to be barred from an AA meeting, it was me, but every time I'd come back, they'd smile and say Keep Coming Back."
