Seniors in AA
Senior members have their own challenges as they grow older in AA, and many subsequently had a rough year due to COVID-19 pandemic. Isolation, grief, loss, health concerns, getting sober later in life, and difficulties with technology were on the rise for many. The GRAPEVINE has many great stories this month [August].
Voices of Long-Term Sobriety
In the powerful collection of stories from AA Grapevine, old-timers share their wealth of experiences of staying sober for many years through good times and bad. For more information, visit aagrapevine.org/books
Grapevine Quote
An old-timer spoke about the danger of becoming complacent and explained the need for the Steps in her life. "The way I see it, she said, might have gotten the money off my back, but the circus is still in town."

Young & Sober
Grapevine has a collection of stories about the joys and challenges of getting sober at an early age. AA members talked about recognizing their disease even though their drinking may have only lasted a few years. Written by members who got sober in their teens, 20's and 30's, the articles in this book are about growing up young in AA. Finding ways to connect when feeling different, getting involved in service and learning how to live a sober life joyously.
