There are numerous references to God and spirituality that appear in Alcoholic Anonymous literature, namely in the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions. Some meetings even take the religion thing a bit further and recite the Lord’s Prayer.

The conflicting min...Read Full Post »

Keep It Simple
One of the best ways to persuade others is with your ears—by listening to them.

Hi my name is Tyson and I just relapsed 10 days ago after 160 days of being sober. I learned from my slip and I am ready to go back at it. I have yet to have a sponser or work the steps.
