Charlie Wilson’s War Against The Rules

Here is a fun story about an AA, Charles Wilson of Indian Lake, New York – who I will refer to as “Charles W” to respect his anonymity. It seems like Chuck was smuggling smokes into his fellow AAs who are spending time in the joint:

AA counselor accused of smuggling tobacco into upstate NY jail:

“Authorities say Wilson was an AA counselor volunteering at the county jail in Fort Edward. Deputies say he brought tobacco products into the jail and gave them to inmates he was counseling. Smoking is banned in New York’s jails and prisons.”

What is it with AAs and smoking? They smoke A LOT. Why don’t higher powers™ work with tobacco addiction? Can’t they just add “tobacco” to the end of step 1?
