1000 Years of Sobriety features the moving personal accounts of twenty men and women who have all remained sober through dedication to the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) program for more than fifty years. These are the real ?old timers,? keepers of the wisdom-men and women from around the world who are among the dwindling generations who came into the program when Bill W. was still alive and whose very existence, their commitment to sobriety, is testament to the power of AA today.
The inspiring stories collected here follow the time-tested formula used by millions of recovering people everywhere who share their stories of hope in meetings every day. They tell us what they were like as active alcoholics and what triggered their decision to join AA. They offer the dramatic details of how they got sober and describe what it's like for them now-how they continue to stay sober today and reap the rewards of recovery. Those who share their stories in 1000 Years of Sobriety are living proof that the human connection bonded by the Twelve Steps has unsurpassed powers, and that AA is a program for generations to come.
