Singleness of Purpose
“Singleness of purpose" is essential to the effective treatment of alcoholism. The reason for
such exaggerated focus is to overcome denial. The denial associated with alcoholism is cunning,
baffling, and powerful and affects the patient, helper, and the community. Unless alcoholism is
kept relentlessly in the foreground, other issues will usurp everybody’s attention.

Thought to Ponder
It is better to do one thing well than many things second-rate.

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
In grateful service,
