Fear not

The ladies shared their experience about how they overcame fear. These women helped the Big Book come alive for me. They used the message on the pages to save my life.

I had just turned 31 and had been arrested just a week before I walked into the rooms of AA. I didn’t arrive here because I wanted to get sober. I showed up to get out of trouble with the law. I had no intention of staying sober, being honest or serving others. I only agreed to work with a sponsor because I thought it would allow me to keep a seat in the program until I got a court date.
