Showing others who suffer how we were given help is the very thing which makes life seem so worth while to us now. …the dark past is. . . the key to life and happiness for others. ~ ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 124

Since I have been sober, I have been healed of many pains: deceiving my partner, deserting my best friend, and spoiling my mother’s hopes for my life. In each case someone in the program told me of a similar problem, and I was able to share what happened to me. When my story was told, both of us got up with lighter hearts.

  1. Awesome website you have here but I was curious if you
    knew of any message boards that cover the same topics discussed in this article?

    I’d really like to be a part of online community where I
    can get advice from other knowledgeable individuals that share the
    same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me
    know. Many thanks!
