During my drinking days I used to deal marijuana. I gave a good deal for the money and my dope sales funded my drinking. Fast forward to double digit sobriety.
No more dealing, right? Well, not exactly. When the Fourth Edition of the Big Book came out, copies were scarce. I heard there was a shipment coming in to Central Office so I called and reserved a case. At Central Office I put the treasure chest in my car trunk and headed for a meeting in my neighborhood.

After the meeting I whispered to one of my “babies” that I had a box of the new Big Books in my car, and did she or any of her sponsees need one? She followed me outside. Furtively, we opened the trunk and lifted a couple of the precious volumes from their hiding place.
Soon the word spread. Others from the meeting began to gather around. Eying the growing crowd, my sponsee chuckled and then laughed out loud. “I can’t believe it,” she cried. “My sponsor is dealing Big Books out of the trunk of her car!” Definitely a good deal for the money.
