CAL – Item # B-23 – Courage to Be Me – Living with Alcoholism

3 Comments

B-23WHAT I LEARNED: 1. This is the first Alateen book I’ve ever read & I was not prepared!  I should’ve had a box of tissues along with it – especially for the “Happy/Sad” section that begins on page 300.  The simplicity & direct honesty felt like I was reading a bunch of diary entries from kids of all ages that I could identify with since I, too, grew up in an alcoholic home.

2. This book doesn’t just cover the Steps, but also the Traditions!  Each section ends with a workshop that I’m going to start using myself …& with my sponsees.

  1. Hey Pat!
    This sounds like all of the material you introduced us to like reading. It is so easy to say I wish my kids read this publication when they were young. On the other hand, they have their own paths they have to take. i need to get out of the way. Pray for them and love them is the best thing I can do for them.

    Thanks Pat.

    Take care.

    • Yeah, I think that’s the biggest thing I’m learning from this blog… that I have preconceived notions about certain pieces of literature I’ve never read, & then when I actually read it, I’m amazed at its power & how relatable it is. This journey through the CAL Catalog is really opening my eyes & my heart! 🙂
