AA Slogans

I call them “truisms.”  I’ve collected some and I don’t have much to say about them.  They stick with us, they haunt us, they have the power to change our lives.  Some came from the founders and literature, some are more recent.

  • Bring the body and the mind will follow.
  • But for the grace of God.
  • Do the next right thing.
  • Don’t drink and go to meetings.
  • Don’t quit before the miracle.
  • Easy does it.
  • Fake it till you make it.
  • First things first.
  • First thought wrong.
  • How important is it?
  • HALT (don’t get hungry, angry, lonely, tired)
  • I am responsible.
  • Keep it simple.
  • Let go and let God.
  • Live and let live.
  • Meeting makers make it.
  • No pain, no gain.
  • One day at a time.
  • Principles before personalities.
  • Progress, not perfection.
  • Restless, irritable and discontent (RID).
  • Think, think, think.
  • This too shall pass.
  • Time takes time.
  • To thine own self be true.
