Never Exclusive

.

We do not wish

to deny anyone

his chance to recover

from alcoholism.

We wish to be just

as inclusive as we can,

never exclusive.”

~ As Bill Sees It       p 186

It is not what we use, it is how we abuse.

Some alcoholics suffer from more than one ISM.

Race, religion, no religion, gender, no gender,

if one is willing to go to any lengths, follow a few suggestions,

and place principles before personalities, then they should

not be denied the opportunity to recover from their affliction,

however, Alcoholics Anonymous places alcohol first.

Recovery is to conform to the principles that have worked.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

We Began To Conform

Then,

as time confirmed

the seeming rightness


of our basic principles,


we began to conform


because it was


the right to do so.”

It took some time but what has resulted is a program

that will work for anyone and everyone.

For those who have failed, they were not thoroughly honest

or they failed to go to any length (do the work) to achieve

the freedom from the obsessions and compulsions

brought about by the disease of alcoholism.

It works if you work it.

Recovery is to conform to the principles that have worked.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
