41. I first got that particular coin for my sponsor - I always tried to get her a special one

I ended up ordering coins for more than one group and they're only a dime more(!), so those are the ones I always get now because - especially with the beginners' group - every celebration is pretty special. And I always say, as I did to my sponsor, even if you're not at a meeting, with that coin Bill W. and Dr. Bob are always with you.

And I have not read that book, thanks for the recommendation! My favorite book was always "As Bill Sees It," we used to read that at what became my favorite initial meeting and it's easy to find something that relates to just about any issue or topic in that book. But then that group was forced to move to another venue and we ended up at a halfway house where we get a whole different type of group - and though we had boxes of books, they all eventually disappeared.

So it turned into just another discussion meeting until a couple of the guys with a little bit of time suggested the book "Living Sober," just the perfect book for anyone starting out, or anyone else who can certainly identify. And with that book, that particular meeting has become one of our best attended. I went there just tonight and we're back to the beginning, read the second topic, and of course there were some who had never read it before - and it was a good reminder for those who were "coming back" - including me.
