One DayThis slogan describes one of AA’s primary strategies for staying sober. For many alcoholics, the concept of permanent abstinence is too overwhelming an option.

Most, however, believe that they could stay sober for a twenty-four hour period, if necessary.

We concern ourselves, therefore only with the day in which we find ourselves. If ever we feel we absolutely, positively must have a drink, we put it off until tomorrow or until the next fifteen minutes if necessary.

This gives us time to call our sponsors, get to a meeting, or pray to our Higher Power to remove the craving from us.
