Featured book; Beginner's Book: Getting and Staying Sober

"When I call my sponsor, my friends, someone on my home group's
phone list, or someone who scribbled their number on a napkin
after a meeting, I make progress ... If we just call, we help one another
stay sober, one call at a time, one connection at a time."
