It is for for you becaus* it tells how other women who once thought they could never escape alcohol now lead happy, useful lives without alcohol. You too, can find the help that will enable you to stop drinking and Ret more out of living than you ever thought possible. The women in AA are young, middle aged or older. Some have costly educations, others have only the essentials of a formal education. Some of the women have lived all their lives against a background of wealth and social prestige, others have known real poverty. All these women have two things in common. They had a drinking roblem. They came to the point where excessive drinking had made their lives miserable for themselves and others. The second thing these women have in common is that they have found a new way of life, without alcohol, through the simple program of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is not always easy lo admit that you are an alcoholic. This obstacle is undoubtedly greater for women than for men. Society is inclined lo be tolerant of the male drunk, but the woman who has messed up her life through drinking is not likely to find the same degree of sympathy from her family, friends or business associates. These women made a discovery of a new attitude toward alcoholism—an attitude that says alcoholism is not a moral problem not a question of lack of character or wil Ipower. The new attitude is thai alcoholism is a health problem; il is an illness or a disease lhat can be arrested. If you have a drinking problem and would like to do something about it write or contact: ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS Box 873 Blytheville, Ark. Closed Meetings Tuesday Nights at 8 p. m.
