While he was in Alcoholics Anonymous he met a 19 year-old kid that had a similar story as his own. He was drinking excessively on frequent occasions and then blacking out. There was one HUGE difference in Timmy Grins and his new friend’s stories. Timmy’s friend woke up one morning and was told that he drove drunk the night before and killed two people while critically injuring two others.
Timmy Grins used his talents as an artist and wrote a spoken word rap called “Last Call”. “Last Call” is a first person description of what it would be like to wake up one morning to this nightmare. Timmy Grins travels the US and speaks at colleges, AA groups, universities and any where else he can get the DON’T DRINK and drive message out.
