June 2020Special Section
This month’s Special Section is “Annual Prison Issue” featuring stories of hope by AA members inside and out of prison walls.
More at Peace
I was raised by parents who got sober when I was young. By age 13, I had experimented with liquor and gotten into trouble at school, which led my father to take me along with him to AA meetings.
Facing Our Fears
I’m grateful that when I came into AA there were plenty of good examples around to teach me the principles we are to practice in order to change our lives.
Grapevine Daily Quote May 24
“Newcomers are approaching AA at the rate of tens of thousands yearly. They represent almost every belief and attitude imaginable. We have atheists and agnostics. We have people of nearly every race, culture and religion. In AA we are supposed to be bound together in the kinship of a common suffering. Consequently, the full individual liberty to practice any creed or principle or therapy whatever should be a first consideration for us all. Let us not, therefore, pressure anyone with our individual or even our collective views. Let us instead accord each other the respect and love that is due to every human being as he tries to make his way toward the light. Let us always try to be inclusive rather than exclusive; let us remember that each alcoholic among us is a member of AA, so long as he or she so declares.”
Count your days here.
