We discover that a key factor in this progress seemed to be humility, coupled with reliance upon a Power greater than the alcoholic himself. While some prefer to call this Power "God," we were told that this was purely a matter of personal interpretation; we could conceive of the Power in any terms we thought fit. Sine* alcohol had obviously been a power greater than ourselves during our drinking days, we had to admit that perhaps we could not run the whole show ourselves and that it made sense to turn elsewhere for help. As we have grown in AA. our concept of a Greater Power has usually become more mature. But it has always been our own personal concept; no one hag forced H upon us. Finally, we noled from the Twelfth Suggested Step, and from (he experience of older members, that work with other alcoholics who turned to AA for help was an effective way of strengthening our own sab- riely. Whenever possible, we tried to do our share, always keeping in mind that Ihe other person was the only one who could determine whether or not he (or she) was an alcoholic. • We were also guided by the experience of the many AA's who have given new meaning to three lime-worn sayings or slogans. ''First Things First" is one of the slogans, reminding us that, much as we would like (o try, we cannot do everything at once, that we have to remember the prior importance of sobriety in any attempt to rebuild our lives.
