Hey Girls Out There. This Story I Have To Share. This Is One I Would Like A Cultivated Reply From No Other Than A Female Voice Of Opinion.

On the A.A. calendar it was Year Two. . . . A newcomer appeared at one of these groups. . . . He soon proved that his was a desperate case, and that above all he wanted to get well. . . . [He said], “Since I am the victim of another addiction even worse stigmatized than alcoholism, you may not want me among you.”

— TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, pp. 141-42

I came to you—a wife, mother, woman who had walked out on her husband, children, family. I was a drunk, a pill-head, a nothing. Yet no one denied me love, caring, a sense of belonging. Today, by God’s grace and the love of a good sponsor and a home group, I can say that—through you in Alcoholics Anonymous—I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother and a woman. Sober. Free of pills. Responsible.

Without a Higher Power I found in the Fellowship, my life would be meaningless. I am full of gratitude to be a member of good standing in Alcoholics Anonymous.

  1. When I first read this article I thought, “Hey, this 12 step program must really help people..” But then when I read this line it really got me, “sober, free of pills, responsible.”
    I am none of those things today. I have Multiple Sclerosis, PTSD, and high anxiety. I use highly addictive medicines to help me cope with all of it. So this blog opened my eyes. Because I want so much to be Sober, Free of Pills, and above all responsible. I have a goal and a purpose now. To make these things true again, as much as I can. And you know what? I think I can.
