My new Big Book

A while back I wrote to the General Service Office in New York from my prison work camp here in Florida. When they responded they sent me a brand-new Big Book. At first I figured I would give it to a newcomer, but then I remembered I was contemplating getting a new Big Book myself. Mine is falling apart and all taped up

I never would have figured that making such a decision would be so hard. My old Big Book means so much to me. I’ve had it for three and a half years now. Although it’s not my first Big Book, it’s the one that I’ve had since I started to take my recovery seriously.
