April 13, 2016 – The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener

Wednesday, April 13, 2016 

Many persons look upon AA as something new and revolutionary whereas it is just the reverse. We have no new thoughts or doctrines, and we have certainly discovered no new cures. 

Our medications are those administered 2,000 years ago. Our philosophies were borrowed, not word for word but in substance, from the Great Book our mothers read to us as children. 

While science experimented for new and certain cures, we dug out the old but still potent prescription and administered it with sympathy and understanding. We can attest to the fact that it still works.
