I HAVE BEEN AWARE OF A DIFFERENT KIND OF WOMAN IN A.A. YEARS AGO, INFORMATION ABOUT AN ALCOHOLIC WOMAN, WERE VERY DISMAL. WORDS SUCH AS: "DEVIANT BEHAVIOR." THOSE ARE HARDLY WORDS THAT WOULD MAKE A WOMAN WANT TO GET SOBER. LABELS LIKE THAT ARE FRIGHTENING AND ARE FILLED WITH SHAME. I HAVE THOUGHT FOR TOO LONG WE NEED A BETTER AND TRUER IMAGE OF WHAT WE PERCEIVE AS A WOMAN ALCOHOLIC. THAT IS WHEN I THOUGHT OF THIS BOOK. IT IS A WAY TO GET AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE SOBER WOMEN AND THEIR STORIES. THANKFULLY THEY ARE WILLING TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU.

I FIND AN INTELLIGENT, TALENTED, CARING. POWERFUL GROUP OF WOMEN, IN THE AA PROGRAM. COURAGEOUS ALSO, (EVIDENT IN THE FOLLOWING STORIES). YOU MAY BE AMAZED AT THE OBSTACLES IN THEIR LIVES, BEFORE AND AFTER SOBRIETY. BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND THE THE AA PROGRAM THEY HAVE FOUND A NEW DIMENSION
