Come join in with loads of other grateful recovering alcoholics, and help the Alive After Five A.A. Group celebrate 31 years of helping alcoholics to stop drinking. We will eat at 5:00. PLEASE bring a dish or dessert to share. The famous J.B. will be doing the main course….YUM! A special lead speaker will share their experience, strength and hope. Family and friends are welcome. Hope to see you there!
Let us emphasize that our reluctance to fight one another, or anybody else, is not counted as some special virtue which entitles us A.A.’s to feel superior to other people. Nor does this reluctance mean that the members of A.A. are going to back away from their individual responsibilities as citizens. Here they should feel free to act as they see the right upon the public issues of our times. But when it comes to A.A. as a whole, that’s quite a different matter. As a group we do not enter into public controversy, because we are sure that our Society will perish if we do.
Face The Music
“Don’t be too discouraged about that slip. Practically always, we drunks learn the hard way. “Your idea of moving on to somewhere else may be good, or it may not. Perhaps you have got into an emotional or economic jam that can’t be well handled where you are. But maybe you are doing just what all of us have done, at one time or another: Maybe you are running away. Why don’t you try to think that through again carefully?
“Are you really placing recovery first, or are you making it contingent upon other people, places, or circumstances? You may find it ever so much better to face the music right where you are now, and, with the help of the A.A. program, win through. Before you make a decision,weigh it in these terms.”
