Paving the way

If someone hadn’t listed our meetings or delivered the pamphlets, how would we have known where to find help?

It’s always fascinating to learn just how people came to Alcoholics Anonymous. In my case, I looked up AA in the phone book and called our local central office. Thank goodness some service board or committee put it there! The person on the other end of the line took my number and had an AA member call me back for the one-on-one, language-of-the-heart introduction that began my incredible journey in sobriety.
