The Washingtonians


“When the Washingtonians

became temperance crusaders,

within a very few years

they had completely lost

their effectiveness

in helping alcoholics.”


Twelve and Twelve  p 178


Keep it simple, never forget the primary purpose

to keep each other sober, one day at a time.

Personally, you may want to join MADD or

support some other groups, but anonymity dictates

that A.A. as such has no opinion on outside issues

and should not be drawn into public controversy.

Today, work the steps, follow the traditions

and make sure that A.A. will be there

for future generations.

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.
