From: "A Vision for You"

Thus we grow. And so can you, though you be but one man with this book in your hand. We believe and hope it contains all you will need to begin.

We know what you are thinking. You are saying to yourself: "I'm jittery and alone. I couldn't do that." But you can. You forget that you have just now tapped a source of power much greater than yourself. To duplicate, with such backing, what we have accomplished is only a matter of willingness, patience and labor.

Alcoholics Anonymous, pages 162-163

The Hoffields - Just For Today AA

When I got to AA, I found hope. I had been trying to stop and STAY stopped for eight years and when I got here, I found people with many years of sobriety. Six months seemed like forever. Three months I was in such a fog, I hadn't even got a group and didn't get my pin until someone gave me one many years later to complete my set. I had to add open-mindedness and honesty to the list in order to receive the gift of sobriety (soundness of mind).

I couldn't find sobriety in dysfunctional relationships, using pills to replace the alcohol, working, shopping, food, etc. I was able to stay sober, but sobriety was a whole different thing and something that came as my relationship to my HP grew and through Him, I was able to change and acknowledge the things I needed to change and work the program (the 12 Steps).
