CONFORMING TO THE A.A. WAY
We obey A.A.’s Steps and Traditions because we really want them for
ourselves. It is no longer a question of good or evil; we conform
because we genuinely want to conform. Such is our process of growth
in unity and function. Such is the evidence of God’s grace and love

It is fun to watch myself grow in A.A. I fought conformity to A.A.
principles from the moment I entered, but I learned from the pain of
my belligerence that, in choosing to live the A.A. way of life, I opened
myself to God’s grace and love. Then I began to know the full
meaning of being a member of Alcoholics Anonymous.
