Beginners Meeting

In "The Missing Bottle," a woman's plans to continue drinking are stymied when her secret stash goes missing

This week, we hear stories from beginners in the program of AA. In, "My Big Book of Many Colors," a woman tells us about her early days in sobriety. In "Cleaning up After the Hurricane," a newcomer describes how she went down to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina to help in the clean up effort and got sober.

In another story of someone who traveled far and wide to finally take Step One, an Irishwoman tells of temporarily relocating from Ireland to Ontario, Canada to begin her sober journey.
