“Out Of The Fog!” is for those seeking a happy and joyous life, free from addiction. This is the inspiring story of a 35-year-old woman who had everything—until Demon Rum crept in to steal it all away. The author shares how she learned to shove fear aside and step into a rewarding adventurous life. At 8 years sober, Smith buys a sailboat, teaches herself to sail, and embarks, mostly alone, sometimes with her rebellious teenage daughter, on a 7-year spiritual odyssey in the Pacific. She follows the constellations (until a fellow boater points out that they move!) from San Francisco to the Polynesian Triangle somewhere off Easter Island. “Out of the Fog!” provides painful but compelling insights into overcoming addiction as well as solving mother-daughter issues. Illustrating the power of hope, faith and courage in facing the challenges of recovery and in healing fragile relationships.
Waking Up is for those who follow no religion but suspect that important truths can be found in the experiences of such figures as Jesus, the Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and others. Throughout Harris argues that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow, and that how we pay attention to the present moment largely determines the quality of our lives.
Scientific Prayer enables you, sooner or later, to get yourself, or anyone else, out of any difficulty on the face of the earth. It is the Golden Key to harmony and happiness. To those who have no acquaintance with the mightiest power in existence, this may appear a rash claim, but it needs only a fair trial to prove that, without a shadow of doubt, it is a just one. You need to take no one’s word for it, and you should not. Simply try it for yourself, and see.
12 Step Prayerbook Prayers and inspirations for those seeking just the right words for conversing with their Higher Power or for expressing their innermost thoughts and feelings. Words of wisdom and inspiration, gleaned from Twelve Step meetings and adapted from common prayers and devotional readings, fill this edition. Featuring new prayers, the updated and enhanced second edition offers a total of 183 inspirational passages to assist members of all Twelve Step fellowships in their prayer life and spiritual progress.
The best-known prose work by the winner of the 1980 Nobel Prize for Literature examines the moral and intellectual conflicts faced by men and women living under totalitarianism of the left or right.

Approx 3″ x 4″ in size. Includes Preamble, Steps, Traditions, Extracts from the Big Book and Step Prayers.

Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions explains the 24 basic principles of Alcoholics Anonymous and their application. The book dedicates a chapter to each step and each tradition, providing a detailed interpretation of these principles for personal recovery and the organization of the group.
Living Sober is a detailed account of how successfully stay sober. Very importantly, how to avoid common pitfalls and what to do instead
Came to Believe – the spiritual adventure of A.A. as experienced by individual members. Over 75 A.A. members from all over the world describe the wide diversity of convictions implied in “God as we understood Him.” Especially helpful to those who confuse “spiritual” with “religious.”
This collection of 365 daily meditations captures the essence of a great spiritual leader, one who has influenced millions with his dynamic message of the power of positive thinking. Each devotion works to remind us that our thoughts shape our reality, and helps us access the strength to overcome sorrows, frustrations, and challenges in our daily lives.
Two Study Guides for the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous The first study guide has a summary of each book and then hundreds of follow up questions to answer and add sobriety notes. Can be used alone and in group meetings. The Dr’s Opinion, More About Alcoholism, A Vision for You and all the rest are included. The second study guide is a smaller week by week exercise guide that is suited for group meetings.
Distilled from years of study and lecture, affirmed by nearly a million listeners over the last 50 years, Emmet Fox’s answer in The Sermon on the Mount is simple. The Bible is a “textbook of metaphysics” and the teachings of Jesus express – without dogma – a practical approach for the development of the soul and for the shaping of our lives into what we really wish them to be. For Fox, Jesus was “no sentimental dreamer, no mere dealer in empty platitudes, but the unflinching realist only a great mystic can be”.
Stools and Bottles: 2010 Reprint of 1955 edition. Some years ago the author of The Little Red Book worked out a novel presentation of the first four steps of the A.A. program. Visual aids, consisting of a three-legged stool and eight empty whiskey bottles, were used to portray the intangible factors of these fundamental steps. The book provides thirty-one daily reminders. They deal with A.A. problems commonly encountered by alcoholics who try to make A.A. their way of life.
Alcohol Explained is the definitive, ground-breaking guide to alcohol and alcoholism. It explains how alcohol affects human beings on a chemical, physiological and psychological level, from those first drinks right up to chronic alcoholism. Alcoholism and problem drinking seems illogical to those on the outside, indeed it is equally perplexing for the alcoholic or problem drinker.
The Sober Survival Guide is a unique quit alcohol book and is split into two parts. The first part is designed to set you up for success and put you in a place where you can find freedom from alcohol. The second part serves as a handbook as you move forward into an alcohol-free life and is where this book comes into its own. I used to believe that I couldn’t live without alcohol. Alcohol addiction is never a person’s fault
Becoming Supernatural: The author of the New York Times bestseller You Are the Placebo, as well as Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself and Evolve Your Brain, draws on research conducted at his advanced workshops since 2012 to explore how common people are doing the uncommon to transform themselves and their lives. Becoming Supernatural marries some of the most profound scientific information with ancient wisdom to show how people like you and me can experience a more mystical life.
Language Of The Heart: In 1935, two drunks met and talked in the library of a home in Akron, Ohio, and from that single event was to grow a program of recovery for more than a million once-hopeless alcoholics. How did the seed that became Alcoholics Anonymous take root and develop? The articles in this book tell much of that story. In the Grapevine, AA’s international journal, co-founder Bill W. recorded–and reflected on–AA’s history as it happened. A prolific writer, Bill authored more than 150 Grapevine articles, from 1944 to the late 1960’s and virtually all of them appear here, published for the first time in one volume. A man of extraordinary energy and action, Bill committed his thoughts to paper with great facility.
The Joe & Charlie Journey to Recovery in The Big Book Comes Alive is a book that you’ll want to read for your own Big Book AA recovery as well as get for your friend too.
Harness the power of journaling while on your recovery journey. This sobriety journal supports recovery from any addictive behavior: alcoholism, tobacco, cigarettes, narcotics, substance abuse, overeating, binge-eating and other disorders
