BRINGING THE MESSAGE HOME
“Can we bring the same spirit of love and tolerance into our sometimes deranged family lives that we bring to our A.A. group.”
TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, pp. 111-12
My family members suffer from the effects of my disease. Loving and accepting them as they are—just as I love and accept A.A. members—fosters a return of love, tolerance and harmony to my life. Using common courtesy and respecting others’ personal boundaries are necessary practices for all areas of my life.
