At 18 months, a member expresses her new-found joy in early recovery.

Oblivion was once an excellent vintage.

I am celebrating 18 months of sobriety! Words aren’t enough to express the gratitude I feel.

I believe the way I can properly show God and Alcoholics Anonymous my tremendous gratitude today is by loving his other children, not just in their presence but out of their presence and with my mind. (Remember, we have a thinking problem).

What I think about is crucial since this is a fundamental problem for alcoholics in particular. We have a ‘thinking disease.’ Our thinking is so utterly backward and so selfish that I believe in making every effort...
