An Illness
An illness of this sort—and we have come to believe it an illness—involves those about us
in a way no other human sickness can. If a person has cancer all are sorry for him
and no one is angry or hurt. But not so with the alcoholic illness,
for with it there goes annihilation of all the things worth while in life.
It engulfs all whose lives touch the sufferer’s.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 18

Thought to Ponder
Right actions for the future are the best apologies for wrong ones in the past.

AA-related 'Alconym'

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
In grateful service,
