From Grapevine, the international journal of Alcoholics Anonymous, stories that demonstrate the various ways members get active in AA to stay sober and live rich, rewarding lives
From the practical to the profound, Into Action: How AA Members Practice the Program in Their Daily Lives includes some of the most inspiring contributions to Grapevine magazine. Though Alcoholics Anonymous is known, honored, and emulated throughout the world as a Twelve-Step program, the Steps are only one part of well-rounded method of recovery from alcoholism or addiction.
The stories and letters in this book bring the Fellowship to life with intimate reflections from men and women who’ve acknowledged the value of the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of AA in their own healing and recognize the importance of taking action.
Read about moments of day-to-day personal sobriety from mothers and fathers, soldiers and sponsors, newcomers and old-timers as they face difficult situations, stay connected through reading life-changing literature, volunteer in the service of others, and find the possibility of a spiritual awakening at AA meetings.
Each of these stories illustrates the truth that, no matter what our backgrounds, or locations, our ages, our gender identities, our politics, or our financial status, lasting sobriety can be achieved by getting into action.
