DAILY REFLECTIONS #essentialsofrecovery


A.A. IS NOT A CURE-ALL

It would be a product of false pride to claim that A. A. is a cure-all, even for alcoholism

~ AS BILL SEES IT, p. 285 ~

In my early years of sobriety I was full of pride, thinking that A. A. was the only source of treatment for a good and happy life. It certainly was the basic ingredient for my sobriety and even today, with over twelve years in the program, I am very involved in meetings, sponsorship and service. During the first four years of my recovery, I found it necessary to seek professional help, since my emotional health was extremely poor. There are those folks too, who have found sobriety and happiness in other organizations. A.A. taught me that I had a choice: to go to any lengths to enhance my sobriety. A.A. may not be a cure-all for everything, but it is the center of my sober living.
