FORMING
TRUE PARTNERSHIPS

How AA Members Use the Program
To Improve Relationships


When we were drinking, many of us had, as the Step Four chapter in the AA book Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions puts it, “a total inability to form a true partnership with another human being.”
Forming True Partnerships is a collection of Grapevine stories that show the many ways members use the Twelve Steps, sponsorship, and the tools of the program to improve and repair relationships, old and new.

With candid and colorful stories on families, friendships, marriage, divorce, dating, romance, coworkers, sponsorship and pets, Forming True Partnerships covers a wide range of experience from sober alcoholics on how we form true partnerships with others.

For yourself, or someone you know, each page in this book, offers an inspiring passage of experience, strength and hope to bring into your life.

“The Book That Started It All” is now available at Intergroup

An extraordinary reproduction of the original working manuscript of Alcoholics Anonymous, with essays and notes by a panel of celebrated AA historians. The Book That Started It All offers fresh insights into the history and foundation of the revolutionary Alcoholics Anonymous program. Reproduced in this elegant gift edition with essays and notes by a panel of celebrated AA historians, the original working manuscript is the missing link in our understanding of what transpired between AA founder Bill Wilson’s first draft of Alcoholics Anonymous and the first published edition. In January 1939, Wilson and other AA founders distributed 400 copies of his typescript to everyone they could think of “who might be concerned with the problem of alcoholism,” to test out the program. As the loan copies were returned, suggestions for revision were considered and written out in colored pencil on one master copy that was eventually submitted for publication.IMG_0047 IMG_0045 IMG_0044The many changes made in black, green, and red on page after page are shown here in their original form, revealing the opinions, debates, and discussions that went into making the Big Book.This is perfect for your coffee table. The Book That Started It All weighs more than five pounds, is 11.25″ wide and 13.5″ tall, with a 22.5″ span when open.
