No Dogma or Theology

Dec 1 pansies 020



“Beyond a Higher Power,

as each of us

may vision Him,

A.A. must never,

as a society,

enter the field of

dogma or theology.”


As Bill Sees It, p.116


A.A. as such is not a religion or a cult.

Each individual must seek

their own concept of a Higher Power,

an entity outside of themselves that can remove

theĀ obsession and compulsion to drink.

A.A. is a suggested program of recovery from alcoholism

and therefore each individual must find their own

pathway to a faith that will sustain their sobriety.

Traditions do not make for dogma.

Today, believe what you want to believe

as long as it keeps you sober.

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.
