WHEN THE GOING GETS ROUGH

It is a design for living that works in rough going.

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 15

    When I came to A.A., I realized that A.A. worked wonderfully to help keep me sober. But could it work on real life problems, no concerned with drinking? I had my doubts. After being sober for more then two years I got my answer. I lost my job, developed physical problems, my diabetic father lost a leg, and someone I loved left me for another--and all of this happened during a two-week period. Reality crashed in, yet A.A. was there to support, comfort, and strengthen me. The principles I had learned during my early days of sobriety became a mainstay of my life for not only did I come through, but I never stopped being able to help newcomers. A.A. taught me not to be overwhelmed, but rather to accept and understand my life as it unfolded.
