A meaningful account of overcoming alcoholism and seeking spiritual transformation!

Alcohol abuse can be an occasion for discernment and judgment and making knowledgeable choices. For Rose B. (not her real name), she chose sobriety and spiritual transformation, getting involved in Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.). She talks about her journey from alcoholism to sobriety, as well as her newfound spirituality, in her memoir “The Gift of Sobriety: A Spiritual Transformation” (ReadersMagnet; 2018).
“The Gift of Sobriety” started out as a personal journal and later became a powerful, inspiring book that aims to help other alcoholics overcome their addiction.
“I realized as I was going consistently to the (A.A.) meetings that I was changing in terms of my thinking and my feelings,” Rose B. told radio host Ric Bratton during her second guesting at the latter’s program This Week in America. “I wanted to chronicle what I was experiencing.
“As I started sharing with other people what I was doing, they said, ‘You know, that would be a great book,’ and I felt led to publish it.”
A spiritual crisis following the death of Leslie, her partner and wife for 20 years, drove the author, who was 67 years old that time, to alcoholism. “I was retired and I just lost my hold,” said the author. “I couldn’t figure out who I was now. I descended into alcoholism, not knowing it’s a disease and it took me over. I didn’t understand what was happening until a counselor at an intake crisis unit said, ‘You’re an alcoholic.’”
At the recommendation of an intake counselor, she walked into an A.A. meeting, where her spiritual awakening took place. She said about her first meeting:
“I was totally open that first night. I called my sponsor. We did the third step prayer, which is where you turn your will and your life over to a higher power. I felt immediate relief. I wasn’t running my life anymore. I turned it over and then I continued to grow spiritually in the program.”
Spiritual transformation was possible for the author, who was receptive and willing to do whatever it takes to get her life on track.
When asked by Bratton if the A.A. is a spiritual program, Rose B. replied in the affirmative, “Absolutely! Totally a spiritual program! It’s about love and service.”
