: A central tenet at meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) and Narcotics Anonymous (N.A.) is that anyone can pretty much say anything when they share without fear of interruption or âcrosstalk.â This is a good thing, but it can lead to confusion after the fact. This book dissects and explains the sayings often repeated at these meetingsâslogansâwhile emphasizing that these slogans by themselves donât solve anything: We must work hard every day to be successful. Andâalthough this sometimes seems hard to fathom to those in early recoveryâthe nature of this work can change: It is anything but drudgery. The despair of active addiction fades into the background, and we are blessed with a joyous, busy, and full life.
