The Unwritten Chapter

A member living with bipolar depression discusses her experiences in AA

I came to Alcoholics Anonymous through a 28-day detox and rehab program in 1987. I have had consecutive periods of three, 11, two and a half, and one and a half years of sobriety, with periods of drinking and disaster in between. I have been to AA meetings in most states and several countries; have worked the Steps 19 times with 20 different sponsors over 27 years in 8 different towns and cities. I've attended countless AA conferences, workshops, camp-outs, and have studied our history, our program and our fellowship.
