AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
Alcoholics Anonymous is not a religious organization. Neither does A.A. take any particular medical point of view, though we cooperate widely with the men of medicine as well as with the men of religion. – Pg. XX – Forward To The Second Editon – 4th. Edition
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
Our 12 steps are dedicated primarily to the cultivation of principle in the befuddled addict’s mind. Spiritual soundness leads to mental soundness. Even though we don’t understand the process of our program to stop our cravings, we must trust that IT WORKS.
I look at those around me, at their success and know that this process WORKS even if it isn’t clear how.
I will pay attention to guidance from within and without. There are moments when I know I am doing what lights my spirit and challenges me. Moments when I feel alive and in tune; in touch with a force beyond me that is guiding me towards something that’s right for me. Those moments are golden. They carry me through my fears and hard times, they sustain me when inevitable doubts creep in, they give me strength to carry on and stay on course.
I will hold inspiration close to my heart.

It’s hard to believe that this simple program can work for us. But it does. We see it each time an old timer celebrates a birthday, a newcomer picks up a token, or a former skid row drunk reaches out to help an alcoholic doctor that has hit his first meeting in desperation. Believe.
I make believe until I can believe.

They say that you need only one meeting a week but it might be a good idea to go to one every night so you don’t miss the one you need!
