"Reading recovery literature is another important tool of the program. It helps to educate, motivate, and inspire us. Reading recovery literature helps us learn how to stay sober and work a recovery program specifically tailored for us." This does however assume you are literate and sighted, which is not always the case.

Ever thought about the fact that the programs assumes you can read?

I knew a guy who was illiterate in the program
In aa we have a tradition where the introduction to the meeting includes readings from approved literature and is shared by different members
Ken could never participate in this
He couldn’t read the Big Book. But Ken could pray
He might be the most spiritual person I knew.
