    Bedford Hills is very close to where I grew-up. Very close. And I never knew about what went on there until much later in life.

    Spring of 1988 was my last drink. Went to meetings twice a day for several years but have not been back in quite a while. Never slipped once but a cold beer enters my mind every now and then, thankfully only briefly. Since I gave up the hootch, never thought I'd give up the analogs but read an article that changed that so here I am. I would have been dead by now if I hadn't quit drinking, that I am sure of. I was in pretty bad shape and going down. Analogs can still do that to me since I smoked for 53 years, but that's life and can't take that back.
    If you quit drinking or drugs, do yourself a favor and never go back. Quitting saved me, my marriage, my job and my life.

    I haven't been to Founders Day, but know a ton of folks that have and enjoyed it. I went to the World convention when it was here in Minneapolis. Sitting in the Metrodome, saying the Serenity prayer with 40-50 thousand folks was pretty powerful.

    We have the Gopher State Round-up here every Memorial weekend that is pretty big. I used to go, but opt for camping now. :)

    Nice to see all the folks here. Welcome from Minnesober! :laugh: We are also known as the Land of 10,000 Treatment Centers.
