The Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions has saved my life. I was an alcoholic and had got into rehab last year, wanting to get sober. At the rehab center, I was handed this book and asked to go through it. The book had a wonderful message. However, to get a better understanding of this book, I think it needs to be discussed in a group. I read it both alone and in a group and it made more sense when I discussed it in a group. A Big Shout Out to Bill for this wonderful book.
