Kathy, whose article appears in the April issue of Grapevine magazine, shares with Olis and Sam about her experience with reading the Big Book for the first time in two days and thinking to herself: “this is me, this is me” throughout the book. Her book today is marked up, torn and taped together. Kathy also discusses the uncommon honesty she found in AA and how finding the right sponsor was a key to staying sober.
