"They wheel out this black and white video, starring a guy named Father Martin. He was a Catholic priest, and this must've been from the 1950's. I thought "what are we watching here???" But he proceeded to explain alcoholism, what it was, and he gave examples. When I left that weekend of classes, I knew deep down that I was probably an alcoholic."
