Design for Living
We, in our turn, sought the same escape with all the desperation of
drowning men. What seemed at first a flimsy reed, has proved to be
the loving and powerful hand of God. A new life has been given us or,
if you prefer, "a design for living" that really works.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (There Is A Solution,) p. 28 

Thought to Ponder
I stood in the sunlight at last.

AA-related 'Alconym'
A A  =  Alcoholic's Answer.

Hi, Anne alcoholic here. I feel more strongly now even than when I first realised with relief that I no longer had any say in whether I drank or not! The choice had been removed and I am blessed with freedom as the result. That leaves me with the person who needed to drink in the first place and I was given the solution to that in these rooms and through AA's literature. Primarily the Big Book. Armed with both of these I live free of alcohol and relieved from the bondage of self which made me so miserable all my life. So thank you AA and all of you. I in true alkie form always want 'more' so I'll keep coming back. Thank you for letting me share.

Grateful to serve,
