If you are a newcomer walking into an AA meeting can seem like landing in a foreign country, where you don't know the language or customs of this new , scary and strange land. The Early Sobriety Companion was made by members of AA to give newcomers a head-start in acclimating to AA's recovery environment and feel more comfortable in those first few months that they are coming around. It walks you through the AA basics of Meetings, Sponsorship, and Prayer. It even has a detailed "AA to English" dictionary so that they can learn the AA lingo and know what everyone is talking about!

Most importantly, at the apps core is a Daily Checklist with just 6 simple things that if done each day will greatly increase your chances of getting and staying sober using AA's program. Its very simple and effective, and works if you work it.

The main menu is broken down into ABOUT and the 4 ACTION categories below:

ABOUT
Learn the AA program lingo and basics, including special sections on Sponsorship, Meetings, and Prayer.

DO
Do the six things on this checklist each day* Every night at midnight, the checkmarks will clear, and you will start a new 24 hours of working on your sobriety. We do this program one day at a time.

CALL
Call your sponsor and sober network every day. Keep adding names and numbers at every meeting*

*My Network: To add a new contact you tap the + . From this screen, you can also transfer any contact from your iphone contacts by tapping on “import contact”. Tip: Use “notes” to leave a description of the person which is helpful when you have multiple contacts with the same first name. Use “Home Group” to note at which meeting you usually see the person.

READ
Included are the first 63 pages of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Here are the instructions on how to get sober and start the first three steps of AA’s twelve step program. AA is not an academic program that you can learn yourself; it’s a spiritual program that is done with the help of others. Ask your sponsor to go over each chapter with you before you go on to the next one.

LISTEN
Included are the recordings of the ”Joe and Charlie Big Book Study” that correspond with the first 63 pages of the Big Book. Listen to them in order, as each builds on the last.
