Early AA /From the Foreword to the second edition, pg xx Big Book

Of Alcoholics who came to A.A and really tried, 50% got sober at once and remained that way; 25% sobered up after some relapses, and among the remainder those who stayed on with AA showed an improvement.  Other thousands came to a few AA meetings and at first decided they did not want the program but a great numbers of these (about 2 out of 3) began to return as time passed.

Pretty staggering statistics…   “Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path”.
