Under Construction and AA Bootcamp-recovery from alcoholism

As you may know, I recently published a book titled "Under Construction- 25 Life-Building Tools for Addicts in Recovery".  Background information on the book is readily available through the links on the right side of this blog. The book can be purchased through on-line book retailers including and

The positive feedback I have been getting from so many individuals is way beyond my greatest expectations. I have had newcomers to AA, "long (old) timers" and family members tell me the book has helped them in their recovery. I regularly thank God for inspiring and guiding me in writing the book. Without Him, it would not have happened.

And the inspiration to write about recovery has hit me hard again... In response, I am writing a new book for those who want to learn more about the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is intended to serve as a basic guide for recovery through AA.  Although it is geared toward newcomers, I believe it will be a useful resource for AA members with any length of sobriety.

Although things change when doing a book project, the title for this new book is currently:

AA Bootcamp- A basic training guide for newly recovering alcoholics (and those that are not so new)

Changing us -recovery from alcoholism



"Bless him/her....change me"

How does change happen with you?

When you have a resentment toward someone,  do you think this prayer would help? Why?

What have your experiences been trying to change others?
