One Day at a Time in Al-Anon:

It really isn’t so hard to believe in miracles in Al-Anon. We see such miraculous changes in people who came as newcomers filled with self-pity and resentment and beset with fears. There may not even have been any improvement in their alcoholic situation at home, but what they learn in Al-Anon makes a tremendous difference in their own outlook. They gain confidence and poise, they come out of their shells and concern themselves with others in similar trouble.

All of this can be attributed to the sound spiritual sense that Al-Anon makes; but certainly “miracle” is a good word to describe the results

Today’s Reminder:

The first gift a newcomer receives from contact with Al-Anon is hope. Seeing how others rise above their problems, listening to situations worse than their own, absorbing the atmosphere of love and goodwill, sends them home with a new lease on life.

“Let me always be willing to lead a newcomer by the hand and bring to light the latent courage and confidence that exists in every one of us. Let me, in such sponsoring, help Al-Anon to produce still another miracle.”
