We’re taught in The Program that “faith without works is dead.” How true this is for the alcoholic. For if an alcoholic fails to perfect or enlarge his or her spiritual life through work and self-sacrifice for others, they can’t survive the certain trials and low spots ahead. If he/she doesn’t work, they will surely return to his or her booze; and if they returns to drinking, they’ll likely die. Then faith will be dead indeed. Do I believe, through my faith, that I can be uniquely useful to those who still suffer?
