---Can't Put My Finger on the Key---

I OUGHT to know a lot about AA--but I don't. I have seen it work successfully on 200 different drunks, regardless of age, sex, color, creed, contour or bank account. I don't know what makes it "click" with such regularity. I still can't put my finger on the "key" phase, or thought or act, that changes us from wet to dry. The 200 members and dozen clubs I know each have a pet and different high spot in the Program that appeals to them. They will even argue to defend their pet solution. Each new meeting leader brings out a new angle that did the job for him. Even if it works only for him, it is justified and sufficient. Therefore, the only real conclusion I can reach, is that AA will work somehow for anybody who will let it.
