Meaning of “H.O.W.”
On most anniversary chips I see "H.O.W." printed inside the triangle. What does this mean?
H.O.W. is an acronym for Honesty, Open Mindedness & Willingness.
It comes from the Spiritual Experience appendix of The Big Book:
"We find that no one need have difficulty with the spirituality of the program. Willingness, honesty and open mindedness are the essentials of recovery. But these are indispensable."
