1000 Years of Sobriety: 20 Pepple x 50 Years
The inspiring accounts collected here follow the time-tested formula used by millions of people who share their stories of hope in AA meetings every day: They tell us what they were like as active alcoholics, what triggered their decision to join AA, and the dramatic details of how they got sober--and how they've stayed sober for more than fifty years. Each story concludes with sage words of advice for others in recovery. Those who share their stories in this book are living proof that the human connection bonded by the Twelve Steps has unsurpassed powers, and that AA is a program for generations to come.
