The Weekly Package
This Sober Life
In "Get With the Program," an old-timer exhorts newcomers to work the Steps and not just "go to meetings."
In this week's stories, we hear from members on a diverse range of subjects. In "My Crooked Steps," a sober woman keeps a reminder of what it used to be like.
In "Coming Back and Coming Clean," a member tells his homegroup that he took money from the collection during his relapse. In another story, "Dark Groups," a member weighs in on the phenomenon of groups who don't participate in area service. Lastly, a traveller goes to any length to find a meeting in the forest in "A Well-Lighted Place."
