...we wish to say...

"...that any alcoholic capable of honestly facing his problems in the light of our experience can recover, provided he does not close his mind to all spiritual concepts. He can only be defeated by an attitude of intolerance or belligerent denial. . . We find that no one need have difficulty with the spirituality of the program. Willingness, honesty and open mindedness are the essentials of recovery."

-Alcoholics Anonymous, p.568
