The Big Book
The 12 and 12
24 Hours a Day
Tonight, we are going to talk about women in recovery.
We have women in the studio who are familiar with AA, NA, and Al-Anon as well.
For those who are new, AA and NA are for people who have a desire to quit, and Al-Anon are for people who have been affected by someone else’s using.
But tonight, we want to explore the unique challenges for women in recovery,
whether you are an alcoholic or if you love one.
We hope to discuss the barriers to recovery.
We also plan to discuss the difference between the programs,
and we will probably discuss some similarities.
Hopefully, there will be surprises.
