Young People's Groups

A chance to share our "inexperience" within the framework of AA

MY FIRST contact with AA was in Buffalo, N.Y., over eleven years ago, at the age of twenty-three. The number of young people in AA was small, and I was lost and lonely as ever. I could identify readily with the members' stories, as I'd been in bad shape from day one, but how to get well was something else. I stayed sober purely on guts for almost two years.
