Editorial

“Alcoholism is a rough word to deal with. Yet nobody is too young (or old) to have trouble with booze. That’s because alcoholism is an illness. It can hit anyone. Young, old, rich, poor, black, white. And it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been drinking or what you’ve been drinking. It’s what drinking does to you that counts.” (Taken from the AA leaflet A Message to Young People).

AA has members of all ages and lengths of sobriety, we appreciate each other’s differences and learn from identification with each other through our experience, strength and hope. This issue we hear from those members who gained sobriety in their younger years; some of whom have then taken on AA service roles focused on young people. Thank you to those who have sent in articles for this edition and shared with us, it is greatly appreciated and it is important to share your stories to help the newcomer and those considering if drink is causing them problems.

Several of the stories in this issue note that some years before the author found AA that people began to mention their drinking and the problems it was causing. Something many of us can identify with, but we entered the rooms when it was the right time for us and the important thing is that we did get here eventually.

Our 2021 Yearbook is now available for order and delivery and you can order using the details on page 8. This soft-covered book contains all of our stories from 2021 - a historic year as AA continued to go from strength to strength during our second year of Covid-19 restrictions.  This book makes a great gift or service tool for those unable to get to meetings at the moment.
