It works -- it really does.


      When I got sober I initially had faith only in the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. Desperation and fear kept me sober (and maybe a caring and/or tough sponsor helped!) Faith in a Higher Power came much later. This faith came slowly at first, after I began listening to others share at meetings about their experiences-- experiences that I had never faced sober, but that they were facing with strength from a Higher Power. Out of their sharing came hope that I too would --and could-- "get" a Higher Power. In time, I learned that a Higher Power--a faith that works under all conditions--is possible. Today this faith, plus the honesty, open-mindedness and willingness to work the Steps of the program, gives me the serenity that I seek. It works--it really does.
