New to Sobriety

Hey family!

Today I have 22 days of sobriety and I have to say these past few weeks have gone really well so far! A little bit about my story...I first came in to the rooms in February of 2015 and got about 30 days before I relapsed. After my first relapse every day went by so slowly and I could not stop thinking about drinking every single day. Unsurprisingly I relapsed again but I feel really good this time around. I'm working my program really well and I've increased my sober network and hang out with my sober friends as much as possible. Today I actually finished steps 5-7 with my sponsor and I'm really excited!!

I'm trying to find some printable copies of Joe and Charlie's Big Book Study worksheets and also a printed copy of the transcript of one of their weekend sessions---does anyone know where I could find either of these things? Also any recommendations for books about sobriety, workbooks to work the steps, apps, blogs, or AA speakers would be greatly appreciated.

I hope to see some of y'all in my hometown of Atlanta, Georgia for the 2015 International Convention!!

Thanks so much <3

Welcome back!
It took me a couple tries to get it right to, now I'm 10 months sober.
Keep pushing through, you will have your ups and downs but trust me it gets easier and it is so rewarding. I never want to drink again.

welcome iflyairplanes1

You might ask in the 12 step forum for the worksheets and transcripts?
