Quote from: Mindy on Sep 13, 2023, 05:01 PMI've read a few. I typed my experience with alcohol today in my newest blog in my signature. I read the AA book back in 2015, and it helped but the thing that helped me quit alcohol was AA meetings. Just hearing someone else talk about their troubles at the meetings with the speakers and plus all the go-arounds people add after. this small black book helped me the most, meant to be read one page a day, but that one page can be read many times:The only self-help books I've read are this 24 hours a day book, the AA book, and the bible.

Although I haven't read it in 50 years, I remember enjoying its easy prose, and I have just learned that (i) it's a mere 80 pages long and (ii) it's available, complete, for free and with no complex downloading at this link: just click and start reading: - https://ia800906.us.archive.org/29/items/howtoliveon24hou00bennuoft/howtoliveon24hou00bennuoft.pdfIn fact, I think I'll take my own advice and read it again when I get home. Does anyone want to join me, so that we can compare notes on another day?
Quote from: aurora on Nov 11, 2023, 02:41 AMOne of the big mantras in the Alcoholics Anonymous fellowship is "One day at a time". So yes, Twenty Four Hours A Day basically gives people in recovery advice on how to stay present in each day.I'd take you up on reading buddies, but I can't even finish the 10 books I've started this year.
