I was so excited (and honored) that AA’s magazine The Grapevine selected my story to be published in the online version of the magazine. And they didn’t even edit much of it out! But imagine my surprise when I discovered that people have to PAY–and a LOT–to read the entire article! Talk about preaching to the choir! How are we supposed to reach alkies out there with our stories of experience, strength and hope if they have to pay to read them? This just seems ridiculous to me. NO ONE who is still on the fence about whether they’re an alcoholic or not is going to pay to look at The Grapevine. I’m really disappointed about this.
