“Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism… Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.”
“Remember that we deal with alcohol, cunning, baffling, powerful!
Without help it is too much for us.
But there is One who has all power,
that One is God.
May you find Him now!
Half measures availed us nothing.
We stood at the turning point. We ask His protection and care with complete abandon.”
