Quote of the Week:

“Bill W. said that the force that will destroy Alcoholics Anonymous will come very slowly from inside the Fellowship.

…The old-timers must stick around to teach the newer members “how it works,” not only in the Twelve Steps but in our groups. Sometimes the new people must drag the answers out of the old-timers, and if they are not at the meetings, we will repeat the mistakes made early in the Fellowship.

…By helping insure the sobriety of others to come, we insure our own sobriety today. The best member of Alcoholics Anonymous that one can be is the best member of a home group that one can be.”
