    WEEDING THE GARDEN
    The essence of all growth is a willingness to make a change for the better and then an unremitting willingness to shoulder whatever responsibility this entails.
    — AS BILL SEES IT, p. 115
    By the time I had reached Step Three I had been freed of my dependence on alcohol, but bitter experience has shown m…[Read more]

    OVERCOMING SELF-WILL
    “So our troubles, we think, are basically of our own making. They arise out of ourselves, and the alcoholic is an extreme example of self-will run riot, though he usually doesn’t think so. Above everything, we alcoholics must be rid of this selfishness. We must, or it kills us!”

    HOPE

    Do not be discouraged.

    — ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 60

    Few experiences are of less value to me than fast sobriety. Too many times discouragement has been the bonus for unrealistic expectations, not to mention self-pity or fatigue from my wanting to change the world by the weekend. Discouragement is a warning s…[Read more]

    “Lack of power, that was our dilemma. We had to find a power by which we could live, and it had to be a Power greater than ourselves. Obviously. But where and how were we to find this Power?
    Well, that’s exactly what this book is about. Its main object is to enable you to find a Power greater than yourself which will solve your p…[Read more]

    IT WORKS

    It works—it really does.

    — ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 88

    When I got sober I initially had faith only in the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. Desperation and fear kept me sober (and maybe a caring and/or tough sponsor helped!). Faith in a Higher Power came much later. This faith came slowly at first, after I beg…[Read more]

    WHAT? NO PRESIDENT?

    When told that our Society has no president having authority to govern it, no treasurer who can compel the payment of any dues, . . . our friends gasp and exclaim, “This simply can’t be. . . .”

    A.A. Thought for the Day

    We should be free from alcohol for good. It’s out of our hands and in the hands of God, so we don’t need to worry about it or even think about it any more. But if we haven’t done this honestly and fully, the chances are that it will become our problem again. Since we don’t trust God to take ca…[Read more]

    • Hi Rich, I was in church today and saw two of my classmates. It fed my heart to see them doing good. I also want to thank you for all you do for everyone. I look forward to being at Crown Point location sober living. I hope we can meet in person someday. God bless

      • That’s great Todd! I’m happy to hear you got to see your friends! And thank you for the kind words! I appreciate it. Keep up the good work!

    A UNIQUE STABILITY

    Where does A.A. get its direction? . . . These practical folk then read Tradition Two, and learn that the sole authority in A.A. is a loving God as He may express Himself in the group conscience. . . . The elder statesman is the one who sees the wisdom of the group’s decision, who holds no…[Read more]

    A.A. Thought for the Day
    When we came into A.A., the first thing we did was to admit that we couldn’t do anything about our drinking. We admitted that alcohol had us licked and that we were helpless against it. We never could decide whether or not to take a drink. We always took the drink. And since we couldn’t do any…[Read more]

    NO ORDINARY SUCCESS STORY
    A.A. is no success story in the ordinary sense of the word. It is a story of suffering transmuted, under grace, into spiritual progress.

    — AS BILL SEES IT, p. 35
    Upon entering A.A. I listened to others talk about the reality of their drinking: loneliness, terror and pain. As I listened f…[Read more]
