To Stay Sober
Alcoholics can stop drinking in many places and many ways—but
Alcoholics Anonymous offers us a way to stay sober. God willing,
we members of A.A. may never again have to deal with drinking,
but we have to deal with sobriety every day. How do we do it?
By learning—through practicing the Twelve Steps and through
sharing at meetings—how to cope with the problems that we
looked to booze to solve, back in our drinking days.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (To Handle Sobriety) pp. 558 - 559 

Thought to Ponder
Sobriety is the adventure of a lifetime.
And it begins the moment we ask AA for help.

AA-related 'Alconym'
A A  =  Amazing Adventure.

Hi everyone. Dennis, grateful alcoholic. When I came to these Hallowed Halls, the only life I knew was chaos, mayhem and pain. THAT was my "Normal." And I did the same thing over and over again expecting that different result. Yep.....Insanity. But through perserverance, that YOU all taught me, I trudged forward and walked this 12 step path to freedom. Guided by God's grace, bathed in the light of the Spirit. And slowly I started to replace the old with the new. This program, all of YOU and God has shown me how beautiful life truly can be. "God uses broken people like you and me ... to rescue broken people like you and me." Thank you all so much for all you do for me and each other. God bless you all.
