From the January 1953 magazine.

1952 - A Bonus Year

an extra sober day!

1952 was the year when I opened my heart and thinking apparatus, and let the Spirit take me by the hand. It was a good intention diligently applied, because the year became useful, productive, and I matured with the passing of the days. The percentage of poor days was few, and yet, they were gainfully employed in a productive manner because as day succeeded day, I became more thoroughly engrossed in enjoying my sobriety. All these past hours and thinking have reinforced my perceptions, and have made sturdier the foundation, on which I can now build the Steps.

Every day looks good to...
