Aug. 15, 2014 – The Eye Opener

Frequently people who are only sober in AA try to carry our Message to other alcoholics without realizing that, if you have only sobriety, you can only carry sobriety. In order to carry the AA way of life, you must live the AA way of life.

The fact that you are sober doesn’t imply that you are on the Program. In fact, many outside of AA have longer periods of sobriety behind them than anyone in AA. They started before AA was started. Whether in or out of AA, if you have sobriety only, you are a dried-up drunk in my book.
