My first meeting was on October 11, 2011 and by the grace of God I’ve stayed sober since. In the beginning I found joy in my home group in Barcelona. I was the only woman with about five or six men. They were very nice to me and helped me to stay sober. After some time, I started to feel isolated as I saw that the men used to do activities together and had a special relationship among them, which I wanted too. It was a very lonely time as there were no other women in Spain.
