September 2019 | Young & Sober

Letter from the Editor

It’s a beautiful thing when alcoholics find AA early and avoid years of heavy drinking and are spared, as our cofounder Bill W. wrote, “that last 10 or 15 years of literal hell the rest of us had gone through.” Yet it can be challenging to get sober when you’re young. How will I ever have fun again? Will I fit in? How will I make friends? There’s hope. This month’s special section features inspiring stories by AA members who got sober young and are learning to live full, happy lives.
