Our Mutual Friend

With no AA meeting in prison, he had resigned himself to sharing his Fourth Step via the mail

I'm not very good at robbing banks. My track record staying sober isn't so hot, either. The former is the reason I'm writing this from a federal lock-up. The latter has me using this time to try and work my Steps…again. Step Four always seems to be where I get stuck.

The facility I'm in does not have any kind of organized AA meetings, so I'm on my own. At least that's what I thought until I found out it was possible for me to get a sponsor via the mail through the GSO Corrections Correspondence service.
