July 2021Special Section
This month’s Featured Section is “Annual Prison Issue.” AA members inside and out of prison walls share powerful stories about getting sober and helping one another. Also included are stories of hope by members during the current COVID-19 crisis.
For about three years I’ve been leading an AA meeting inside a medium security prison about 35 miles from my home.
Grateful to Help
Thanks to some of my fellow AA corrections volunteers, I was introduced to taking meetings into jails and prisons in early sobriety.
Courage to Trust
I’ve been an alcoholic since I was 12. I can still vividly remember that first time a beer tasted good. I was transformed from a scared and desperate little boy to a man in charge.
