  1. I have many difficulties w/ reading & comprehention, thru actuallly reading & ataining book knowledge, & understanding or absorbing what i read. I have a tendancy to become ahsamed & frustrated & usually give up, put the book away, & feel guilty for my own stupidity, illiteracy & imcompitence. CAN YOU HELP ME ! I’t the same thing w/ computers &,or technology… I just don’t GET IT !!! Is there any HOPE or Help for me ??? I don’t tweet, have Twitter, orFacebook & wouldn’t know what to do w/ them, if I did. Please Email me w/ a site, or link, where I can, maybe find help or sources that can assist me & my disfunctional ways of LIFE, as I know & live it. Yours despritly, Lynda C.J.F.

    1. Hello Lynda
      Go to and type in reading and comprehension problems. There is hope and there is healing possibilities with a twelve step program of recovery. Find out if there is a DA group in your community. You local chapter of nami will be a source of help for you I am sure. Or go directly to their website at and talk with someone live. I hope this can help.

  2. I couldn’t buy the books clicking on the link (it went to a blank page) but when I clicked on the facebook link at the top right, it took me to a page and then I clicked on “shop now” and was able to buy the books. (-:

  3. How can I find a group in my area? Are there in fact any groups in England? There are so many 12 step groups around – but DA seems very thin on the ground, if not invisible! I find this extraordinary… Maybe I’m missing the obvious but I’d be grateful for a list of DA meetings in England, and more particularly the nearest one to where I’m living. I’m in England and my postcode is DE56 2BL. Thank you 😊

    1. Hello
      Sorry it has taken me so long to respond but I am still recovering from a surgical procedure.
      As far as we know there are no DA groups in England. You might want to check out our Home study Kit which is always a help to those who want to learn more about the steps and how to keep in recovery.
      All the best. HS

  4. I’m doing rather badly right now, and I just can’t handle “real” books. I ordered the daily meditations because it was available in a Kindle edition. Is there a way I could get other books in digital form?

    1. At this time that is the only title that is available as an e-book. We will work on getting the other titles available as e-books.

      Yours in recovery, Bill R

  5. Hi.
    i have a question regarding the book “Depressed Anonymous”, the one that is for 12 steps.
    does this book have new edition or only has 3 revise?

    many thanks for your response in advance.

    1. The book Depressed Anonymous is on its third edition. There are no immediate plans to release a new edition.

  6. From the Bibliography of Higher Thoughts For Down Days; #9-The Antidepressant Tablet, 1989, is that a book that can be purchased? If so where? Thank you.

    1. Adrine, thank you for your letter and interest in the Antidepressant Tablet (1990-2000). This publication was a quarterly publication. Some members of DA would like to see the ANTIDEPRESSANT come out as a book. So far, this idea has not materialized.
      I also would like to see it published as a book. The 10 AD volumes gives the DA fellowship, as it exists today an inside look at what was happening within the fellowship, in those 10 years of operation.

      Hugh S., former editor of the Antidepressant Tablet.
