No Matter What: Dealing With Adversity in Sobriety – GV31

All recovering alcoholics have had to deal with adversity throughout sobriety…a serious illness, an ugly divorce, the death of a child, the loss of a house to fire or to the bank. Despite the fear, pain or self-pity we are in when these tragedies strike, drinking is not an option. The stories in this book show how AA members use the tools of the program and embrace the Fellowship to deal with tough issues.

There is also:


The Language of the Heart, 25th Anniversary Edition – GV11
This special 25th anniversary edition cover will only be available while supplies last.

Bill W. was the Grapevine’s most prolific contributor, writing more than 150 articles, from his first in June 1944 to his last in December 1970. Here in one volume are all of Bill’s Grapevine articles, including his first thoughts about the Traditions, his battles with chronic depression and spiritual pride, memories of an all-night drinking spree with Ebby, and a vivid description of how he came to organize the Steps (there were six in the first draft). Choose your edition here.

2014 Wall Calendars are only $9.00 each.


See striking photographs that reflect the joy of living & sobriety themes

Full-color photographs taken by our readers, accompanied by brief quotes selected from Grapevine articles. The quotes aren’t directly related to either AA or alcoholism, so the calendar may be displayed anonymously.
