Carry The Message

pine is clouds 026


A. A. is more than

a set of principles;

it is a society of

alcoholics in action.

We must carry the message,

else we ourselves can wither

and those who haven’t been

given the truth may die.”


As Bill Sees It, p. 13
Service Manual, p. 5


The twelfth step states:

” we tried to carry this message to alcoholics,

and to practice these principles in all our affairs.”

We tried, it is a suggestion,

just as the whole program is a choice,

to drink and die or to try to do what is suggested

and discover a life in recovery

that is happy joyous and free.

Today, remember that practicing theses principles

is another way to carry the message,

you may be the only Big Book

that someone may ever see.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
