Teenagers and Alcoholics Anonymous
Freedom from Bondage
A story of teenage recovery from Alcoholism
Young when she joined, this A.A. member believes her serious drinking was the result of even deeper issues. She tells here how she was set free, " ...This great experience that released me from the bondage of hatred and replaced it with love is really just another affirmation of the truth I know: I get everything I need in Alcoholics Anonymous - and everything I need I get. And when I get what I need, I invariably find that it is just what I needed all along."
