AA Thought for the Day
September 17, 2017
More than most people, the alcoholic leads a double life. He is very
much the actor. To the outer world he presents his stage character.
This is the one he likes his fellows to see. He wants to enjoy a certain
reputation, but knows in his heart he doesn't deserve it.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 73
Thought to Ponder
Character is what I am; reputation is what people think I am.
