In this month’s Discover AA post we turn to a small piece of literature that we can find in almost every AA meeting – the Just for Today card. The wallets and purses of many AA members, whether newcomer or old-timer, will often contain a copy and although often handed to newcomers, this little scrap of text provides inspiration for all. With over 10,000 copies downloaded from our site alone (as of Jan ’19), it’s popularity seems undiminished.

A handful of versions of the text exist and attribution is usually ascribed to either Frank Crane (Boston Globe, 1921) or Sybil F. Partridge (1925) and was approved for AA publication in 1978. Regardless who wrote it, it’s another great example of the debt of gratitude owed to those non-alcoholics whose wisdom has contributed so much to our movement.
