#C-03 The Promises Come Alive
Many ABA meetings conclude with a reading of the “9th Step Promises” from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. These Promises sketch a vision of the relief and joy that await anyone willing to work through the first nine Steps of the 12- Step Program, and they offer hope to newcomers and to others still in the pain of early sobriety. Six ABA speakers offer their experience of the truth of these Promises. Highly recommended for anyone needing a reason to persevere with working the Steps! A bonus disc on “The Family Perspective” records three family members sharing their experience of living with an anorexic or bulimic, both before and after recovery.
