Global Steps AA Meetings

AA PREAMBLE

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

As Bill Sees It #3 - Pain and Progress

Posted by Erin McV on November 20, 2016 at 1:00 AM

"Years ago I used to commiserate with all people who suffered.  Now I commiserate with those who suffer only in ignorance, who do not understand the purpose and ultimate utility of pain".

Someone once remarked that pain is the touchstone of spiritual progress.How heartily we AA's can agree with him, for we know that the pains of alcoholism had to come before sobriety and emotional turmoil before serenity.

"Believe more deeply.  Hold your face up to the Light, even though for the momeny you do not see".
