This blog is for sharing our wisdom, insights, hope and joy experienced in our journey of recovery from alcoholism. The subjects will cover a wide range of topics; all are intended to raise awareness through reflection, and help us grow by staying sober and improving our lives.
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 amazon.com and
The positive feedback I have been getting
from many individuals is way beyond my greatest expectations. I have had
newcomers to AA, "long (old) timers," and family members tell me the many ways the book has helped them in dealing with recovery.
Another unexpected highlight was when I was informed that the book is being utilized by counselors in local recovery treatment facilities. 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 from alcoholism through AA. Although it
is geared toward newcomers, it will serve as a useful resource for AA
members with any length of sobriety as well as their family and friends. It will also provide specific information for professionals, e.g ,counselors, psychologists, lawyers, etc., who want to understand the fundamentals of the AA program.
Although things change when doing a book
project, the draft title for the new book is:
AA Bootcamp - A Basic Training Guide for Newly Recovering Alcoholics (and Those that are Not so New)
I will be keeping you updated on the book via posts on this blog.
