Making the call

She used to reach for a drink; now she grabs the phone. It’s a simple action that saves lives

My home group is Beaudesert Big Book on Fridays in Queensland, Australia. I was on the helpline last week and a call came in from a frightened woman who said she had a drinking problem and was scared to go to a meeting. I told her that I had been in the same boat once too. I also called the AA helpline. Thank God someone answered for me.
