We Aren’t A Glum Lot

We have been speaking to you of serious, sometimes tragic things. We have been dealing with alcohol in its worst aspect. But we aren’t a glum lot.

If newcomers could see no joy or fun in our existence, they wouldn’t want it. We absolutely insist on enjoying life.

…When we see a man sinking into the mire that is alcoholism,
we give him first aid and place what we have
at his disposal.

Primary Purpose

Each group has but one primary purpose—to carry its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.


So we think cheerfulness and laughter make for usefulness.

But why shouldn’t we laugh?

We have recovered, and have been given the power to help others


WE, OF Alcoholics Anonymous, are more than one hundred men and women who have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body.

Hosted by Bowling Green Host Committee

Event site will be Sloan Convention Center
