Hold, I checked out from my library the book Alcoholics Anonymous. In AA, it's called the Big book. I work a different 12 step program, but this book has really helped me get an even deeper grasp on the 12 steps. I encourage you to take a look, and see if you think a 12 step fellowship could help you, too. It's a very accessible way to feel a part of something bigger than yourself. I think it would support your efforts that you are making to get more involved at Temple. Do you have a mentor there you can call?
