from "Daily Reflections" by A.A. Members for A.A. Members

A New Life

Yes, there is a substitute and it is vastly more than that. It is a fellowship in Alcoholics Anonymous. . . . Life will mean something at last. ~ ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 152

Life is better without alcohol. A.A. and the presence of a Higher Power keeps me sober, but the grace of God does even better; it brings service into my life. Contact with the A.A. program teaches me a new and greater understanding of what Alcoholics Anonymous is and what it does, but most importantly, it helps to show me who I am: an alcoholic who needs the constant experience of the Alcoholics Anonymous program so that I may live a life given to me by my Higher Power.

  3. A.A. Does not ascribe to any religion, although it is encouraged that one believe in one’s own conception of a higher power. At the meetings members with more than six months sober take turns leading and other members share their stories and concerns. All are welcome as long as they have a desire to stop drinking.
