Shelley Marshall captures the jewels of recovery

Shelley has taken the time to capture the most profound tools to stay sober and clean in her writings. Without her work there's no telling what path my life may have taken at 37 years sober I will attribute much of that credit to Shellys day by day publication. Her pocket sponsor relies heavily on her 24 hour a day publication which she gave me at the 2000 world convention in Minneapolis. Her work is an awesome asset for keeping focused on the goal of staying sober and clean one day, one hour or one minute at a time. I am a alcoholic of the hopeless variety which means I had to have a complete psychic change before I could loose the desire to stop drinking. After many many many years in this program I was finally able to do that simply by doing the 12 steps, and I consider my sobriety a huge gift from God and it hasn't always been that way. Dave P.
