When we early A.A.’s
got our first glimmer
of how spiritually prideful
we could be,
we coined this expression:
“Don’t try to be a saint
~ Grapevine, June 1961
It is O.K. to be a saint, however,
it is best to remember that it takes
more than one miracle ( recovering from alcoholism)
and you have to be dead
to become a saint.
Be kind, do the next right thing,
don’t drink, don’t think, go to meetings
and let a loving Higher Power decide
who will be the saints.
Recovery is avoiding false pride.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power
