“In the wake of my spiritual
experience there came a
vision of a society of alcoholics.
If each sufferer were to carry
the news of the scientific
hopelessness of alcoholism
to each new prospect, he might
be able to lay every
newcomer wide open to
a transforming spiritual experience.
This concept proved to be the
foundation of such success
as A.A. has since achieved.”
GRAPEVINE, JANUARY 1963
Alcoholics think too much.
Most alcoholics came into AA as the smartest things on this earth,
they knew everything.
We say most alcoholics because we know that there were a number
who arrived at the AA doors totally defeated, wrung out,
and not to sure what to think.
No matter how they arrive, their thinking must be
persuaded that a Spiritual experience
will do for them what they could not do for themselves.
Today, thank your loving Higher Power for removing
the obsession and compulsion to drink alcohol and for
your serenity and peace of mind.
Recovery is a transforming spiritual experience.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
