There are numerous references to God and spirituality that appear in Alcoholic Anonymous literature, namely in the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions. Some meetings even take the religion thing a bit further and recite the Lord’s Prayer. But for those who aren’t Christians, this rigidity can be considered too intolerant and offensive, making it a turn off for a number of recovering alcoholics looking to stay sober.

Is Happiness The Goal?, p. 306

“I don’t think happiness or unhappiness is the point. How do we meet the problems we face? How do we best learn from them and transmit what we have learned to others, if they would receive the knowledge?

“On my view, we of this world are pupils in a great school of life. It is intended that we try to grow, and that we try to help our fellow travelers to grow in the ki...

THOSE WHO STILL SUFFER

Let us resist the proud assumption that since God has enabled us to do well in one area we are destined to be a channel of saving grace for everybody.

— A.A. COMES OF AGE, p. 232

Everybody knows that when they're happy, than usually the people around them are happy.---George Harrison


Do we think we can't be happy until others are happy? Then nobody is happy. Our unhappy friends won't take our advice. They say,” Why should I do what you say? You are not happy either....
