Tolerance Keeps Us Sober – As Bill Sees It – #312


“Honesty with ourselves and others gets us sober, but it is tolerance that keeps us that way.”


“Experience shows that few alcoholics will long stay away from a group because they don’t like the way it is run. Most return and adjust themselves to whatever conditions they must. Some go to a different group, or form a new one.”


“In other words, once an alcoholic fully realizes that he cannot get well alone, he will somehow find a way to get well and stay well in the company of others. It has been that way from the beginning of A.A. and probably always will be so.”

LETTER, 1943
