 from page 89 of the book Alcoholics Anonymous from chapter 7, "Working With Others.": Practical experience shows that nothing will so much insure immunity from drinking as intensive work with other alcoholics. It works when other activities fail. This is our twelfth suggestion. Carry THIS MESSAGE to other alcoholics. You can help when no one else can. You can secure their confidence when others fail. Remember they are very ill.

Nothing vague there. It doesn't say carry my interpretation of of it, it says carry this message, which is that as a result of a taking a course of action outlined in the preceeding 88 pages, I have a message to carry in Alcoholics Anonymous, a message of hope to hopeless people. The book is not vague at all. Neither were the guys I ran into when I was at the end of my road. Beginning with the forward to the first edition: "To show other alcoholics precisely how we have recovered is the main purpose of this book." Dr. Silkworth says that with the alcoholic of the type he was used to working with, frothy emotional appeal seldom suffices. Frothy means shallow and insubstantial. Stuff like "I quit drinking and now my life is great." The good doctor says that the message which can interest and hold these alcoholic people must have depth and weight. In other words the power of experience. Experience as a hopeless drunk who couldn't stay sober no matter what into a man who has been changed by the power of God. One that couldn't drink because the problem has been removed.

These guys weren't vague at all. They were armed with the facts about themselves and had found a solution. They said this to me: "We can show you precisely how we have recovered from alcoholism. You never have to drink alcohol again in your life, ever. We don't gaurentee you a pain free life, but you don't have to hurt the way you've been hurting and you don't have to be alone the way you've been alone. You can get well here." And they said with conviction and authority.

Once in a while when I go to AA in encounter an alcoholic who hasn't found an answer yet. I can offer him the same message that was given to me.
