Did I get this right:
when the recovered addict/alcoholic opened Ennet House he says he was determined to pass on to the other addicts what had been "so freely given to him in the E-Tier shower."

Is he referring to getting f'd in the showers in prison?

So is this saying that he is freely f'ing the other addicts that he is supposedly helping with starting Ennet House?

He was talking about his spiritual awakening, detailed in the paragraph before.

Oh man - I re-read that part and still didn't get it. Of course.
How many times do we say we had our epiphany or whatever in the shower?
Duh!
Thanks so much.
