1. There is no straight, scientific explanation
for the success of working the twelve steps
or the people who stay clean and sober doing so.

One of the main attractions AA had for me besides
knowing through the example of my father that it
would save my life, was that a higher power was
to be of my understanding AND I didn't have to
fully understand my HP for the steps to work.

Enigma?- Hell yes!

But it works.

Thanks for sharing this.

:)
