The twelve stories in this group tell of alcoholics at its miserable worst.
Many tried everything—hospitals, special treatments, sanitariums, asylums, and jails. Nothing had worked. Loneliness, great physical and mental agony; these were the common lot. All had taken shattering losses on nearly every front of life. Some went on trying to live with alcohol. Others had wanted to die.
Alcoholism had respected nobody, neither rich nor poor, learned or unlettered. All found themselves headed for the same destruction and it seemed they could do nothing whatever to stop it.
Now sober for years, they tell us how long they got well. They prove to almost anyone’s satisfaction that it’s never too late to try Alcoholics Anonymous.
