If it works don't fix it.

If you have one foot in yesterday and one foot in tomorrow you are pissing on today.

Willing to Go to Any Lengths

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.

You can only change yourself.

You can't heal what you don't feel.

You didn't cause it. You can't control it. You can't cure it.

OA never works for people who believe they are God.
