At The Sober Camel we have books and gifts that focus on recovery and spiritual growth. Whether you are a professional in the field, in recovery yourself, or a friend or family member of someone who's on the path of recovery, we have just the item for you.
Dr Bob, a cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous – "would explain prayer by telling how the camels in a caravan would kneel down in the evening, and the men would unload their burdens. In the morning, they would kneel down again, and the men would put the burdens back on. ’It’s the same with prayer,’ Dr. Bob said. ’We get on our knees to unload at night. And in the morning when we get on our knees again, God gives us just the load we are able to carry for that day.’"
"The camel each day goes twice to his knees,
He picks up his load with the greatest of ease,
He walks through the day with his head held high,
And stays for the day, completely dry."
Dr. Bob and the Good Oldtimers
The Sober Camel is not an internet business, although we offer a few of our most popular items on our website. We enjoy meeting our customers in person. Come in to browse through a book, look for just the right gift, or ask a question. We have a Serenity Corner where you can read while enjoying your coffee, have some quiet time, or meet with your sponsor or sponsee. We are not just a store ringing up sales; we are people who share a journey.
