AA Thought for the Day
(courtesy AA-Alive.net)

September 23, 2017

We alcoholics are men and women who have lost the ability to control our drinking.
We know that no real alcoholic ever recovers control.
All of us felt at times that we were regaining control,
but such intervals—usually brief—were inevitably followed by still less control,
which led in time to pitiful and incomprehensible demoralization.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 30

Thought to Ponder
When we try to control our drinking, we have already lost control.

AA-related 'Alconym'
A A  =  Absolute Abstinence.


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