Alcoholism Recovery Program

The Literature Committee is searching for recovery stories from a broad cross-section of our local communities for the Fifth Edition of Alcoholics Anonymous. 

Bill W. wrote on page 29 of the Fourth Edition: “Our hope is that many alcoholic men and women, desperately in need, will see these pages, and we believe that it is only by fully disclosing ourselves and our problems that they will be persuaded to say, ‘Yes, I am one of them too; I must have this thing.’”

It’s the hope that new stories from our membership will help future alcoholics to identify and find recovery. What’s your recovery story? Consider contributing your experience, strength and hope to the Fifth Edition.
