Initial thoughts?


This prayer makes it clear that AA is not a self help program, clearly we need God and each other.  Can this program work alone with a book?  


We place ourselves in a position to receive God’s help by making a decision to abandon our old idea that self will will make us happy.  What does surrender to win mean to you?

How has a perceived strength let you down?
