Why AA in Prison?
MANY ask: "What good can a man get out of Alcoholics Anonymous while serving time in prison?"
AA in prison is not primarily a means of keeping us away from alcohol; the granite blocks that impound us do that. But where a block of granite may be an obstacle in the path of some men, others find they can use it as a stepping stone to elevate themselves. We find in AA that by becoming humble, we become honest. By becoming honest we lessen our emotional conflicts. By lessening our conflicts, we clear our mental channels for acceptance of the Power greater than ourselves.
