It's not about NOT DRINKING anymore!!!

It is not even about not drinking anymore! Not after we have recovered it isn’t. After we recover it is about being useful beings helping others, discovering what God’s will is and then doing it. Combined with letting other alcoholics know about this wonderful new way of living that we have been blessed to have discovered and adopted. It isn’t about spreading the word that if you go to AA meetings hang out with other alkies and share your problems in church basements – that everything will be OK. Because unless you are nothing more than a problem drinker-non-alcoholic, then everything is NOT going to be OK and in fact will get worse.

The truth is that meeting makers don’t make it. We alcoholics aren’t suffering from a disease that ninety meetings in ninety days will conquer. We are suffering from an illness that only a spiritual awakening can conquer. I hope your direction in life is coming from God.....
