I thought this was a cool slogan "always say yes". It isn't in the book "walk softly, but it will be in the next edition!
Another Day Sober: "Always Say 'Yes'
I was taught to always say 'yes' to an AA request. So, when my down-the-block neighbor called me last night to ask if I would take him to a meeting today, I said 'sure.' I am not entirely sure I can actually fit it into the other obligations I have today, but it just about fits and so that is good enough.
What's funny is that I did not plan to go to a meeting today, although I had already decided I 'ought to go to more meetings.' Then comes this call."
