George Huguely: Low-bottom drunk

In Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous they say it takes what it takes for a drunk or addict to want to get sober or straight: Stated another way, every drunk or addict who staggers into AA or NA (usually both) has reached a bottom where he or she has finally been beaten into submission.

That bottom can be high or low – sometimes, as in George Huguely’s case, the bottom is  very, very low. The hard time George has to serve will take him the rest of the way down.

Don’t get me wrong: Huguely deserves what he got, and his sentence is appropriate. If George is to salvage any part of his life, he has to get into AA and/or NA in prison and deal with his addiction.
