Dream of: 24 June 1994 "Relapses"
The room I was in seemed somewhat like a bar, somewhat like a classroom. I was sure of only one thing: I was intoxicated on alcohol. I didn't appear or act intoxicated, however, and I thought anyone who might see me wouldn't detect my intoxication. My body seemed strange to me – basically in good shape but somehow foreign, as if it had grown to its present adult size without my even being aware of it.
I had vague reminiscences of roaming through the streets of Portsmouth, Ohio before arriving at this place (also in Portsmouth). When Timberlake (a former high school schoolmate) walked into the room, even though I hadn't seen Timberlake in a long time, I wasn't surprised to see him now. Thinking that he also was a heavy drinker, I struck up a conversation with him. He quickly informed me that he no longer drank. As we talked, I began feeling sober, and told him I also had abjured drinking, although I knew I had relapses. He asked me if I attended Alcoholics Anonymous (apparently he did), and I told him I had gone before, but I didn't attend now. On one hand I thought there was something base about AA; on the other hand, I thought it would be a good place to meet like-minded people. I was sure I would enjoy talking to the people there; I thought I might start going.
