” The basic principles of A. A.,
as they are know today,
were borrowed mainly from the
fields of religion and medicine,
though some ideas upon which
success finally depended were
the result of noting the behavior
and needs of the Fellowship itself.”
Twelve and Twelve p 16
God made the alcoholic a small minority
of the souls on this earth, therefore,
as medicine and religion work with the majority
there are many times when the needs of the alcoholic
who wants to recover are not fully met.
The program of A. A. addresses the specifics of
recovery from alcoholism by addressing
the entire person; body, mind and soul.
The Big Book keeps it simple, just 164 pages,
therefore it benefits those in recovery to read
the additional A. A. approved literature
to gain a better insight into HOW
this program was developed
and HOW it works.
Today, happy reading.
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.
