I really enjoy attending the EO Tuesday Big Book Study and 12 by 12 study. Regular reading and discussion of these two essential AA literatures have been the foundation of my long-term sobriety. I always learn something new.
Eye Openers is my home group. There’s so much support, compassion and sobriety at this meeting. It’s also an amazing way to start my day.
