Central Bulletin is seeking people to share their AA stories of recovery. Write about topics that matter to A.A. members for inclusion in an upcoming issue. As a matter of fact, you don’t even have to be a professional writer to contribute!

Of course, we’ve paid a high price for a seat in Alcoholics Anonymous

Today, our personal story is a valuable tool which can be passed on to others in recovery. Just decide which topic best interests you, then tell us your experience. For example, you could write about the 12 Steps, 12 Traditions, living sober, acceptance, gratitude, fear and forgiveness. Or, hope, humility, making amends, tolerance, resentments, sponsorship, surrender, willingness, social pressure, dealing with the past, etc. Odds are, if it fits in one of these categories, we can use it: AA History | Family & Relationships | Mental & Emotional | Our Office | Personal Growth & Meditation | Personal Stories | Program Theory | Service | Spiritual

Experience a new way of “giving it away to keep it.” And, help the newcomer and long-timer alike find encouragement and support with your contribution. You never know, it could also be a great investment in your own recovery as well.
