Great Ideas


October Roses 074

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.
