Deal With Sobriety
Alcoholics can stop drinking in many places and many ways—but Alcoholics Anonymous
offers us a way to stay sober. God willing, we members of A.A. may never again have to
deal with drinking, but we have to deal with sobriety every day. How do we do it? By
learning—through practicing the Twelve Steps and through sharing at meetings—how to
cope with the problems that we looked to booze to solve, back in our drinking days.

Hello Everyone. Isabella, alcoholic. "There are many paths." I like that very much. I just wanted to share in the hopes that those who aren't feeling happy and joyous may find hope. Not to be a downer, but to say that living sober is possible no matter what. For me the biggest surprise has been that through suffering my relationship with God has grown, deepened. And that has been an answer to prayers and simply desire of my heart. Last night my youngest daughter and I were talking about her brother, my son. His death, one year ago next week. And we talked about remaining sober through it all. What a gift for both of us and today she and I have the closest relationship we've ever had. An answer to prayers... desire of our hearts. All by God's Grace through working the 12 steps. Thank you all, my friends for being here for me. Thank you God for loving us. God Bless you.
