National Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous
This we owe to A.A.'s future:
To place our common welfare first;
To keep our fellowship united.
For on A.A. unity depend our lives,
And the lives of those to come.
Declaration of the 35th Anniversary International Convention, 1970, Miami, Florida

"Drink responsibly" has done as much for alcoholism as "Have a nice day" has for depression.
