Overview

Updated, additional slogans, and now with illustrations! A great presentation of this classic slogans book. Our inherited wisdom in the 12 Step programs has been pithily summarized in adages and aphorisms, wise sayings and proverbs, one-liners and slogans, notes, quotes, and anecdotes. Here is one of the most complete collections of what we tell each other around the tables, in our literature, when we give a pitch, and when the newcomer walks through the doors. Some of it is wise, some simple and some seemingly dim. But remember that our ability to understand and assimilate insight changes both with knowledge, time in recovery, and service to others. What seemed very wise at 30 days may seem silly at three years.


Absolutely full of recovery slogans from the classics like 'First Things First' to the bizarre like 'Sleazy Does It." These are all the slogans you ever wanted to read from all the 12 Step Programs.

If you have a talk, need to make a poster, want to get a point across to your sponsee--then this is the book for you. Or better yet, put in the john for a reader when folks are doing their business...this book is fun and full of reminders, one liners and great zingers about recovery! So sit back, thumb through the collection, chuckle and reminisce--for this is our collection of wisdom in shorthand, 12 Step sloganeering.

Meet the Author

This collection was not done by one person or even a handful. These are your words and this is your book. It is what we say to each around the tables, what our speakers delight us with, what our newcomers shock us with. Most of all it comes from you, your heart and soul and your recovery. Suffice it to say that you too are an author, one of the many thousands of “authors” who have oft repeated these sayings, slogans, proverbs and prayers.
