Working With Others . . .

Your job now is to be at the place where you may be of maximum helpfulness to others, so never hesitate to go anywhere if you can be helpful... Keep on the firing line of life with these motives and God will keep you unharmed... We are careful never to show intolerance or hatred of drinking as an institution... A spirit of intolerance might repel alcoholics whose lives could have been saved, had it not been for such stupidity. After all, our problems were of our own making. Bottles were only a symbol. Besides, we have stopped fighting anybody or anything. We have to!

Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 102 - 103

Final Thought:

" A.A. put a 'we' in my life... They showed me how gratitude is something that is demonstrated, not talked about - gratitude is action."
