Diagnosis
We do not like to pronounce any individual as alcoholic, but you can quickly diagnose yourself.
Step over to the nearest barroom and try some controlled drinking. Try to drink and stop abruptly.
Try it more than once. It will not take long for you to decide, if you are honest with yourself about it.
It may be worth a bad case of jitters if you get a full knowledge of your condition.
 
- Alcoholics Anonymous, pp. 31 - 32

Thought to Ponder
I would rather go through life sober, believing I am an alcoholic,
than go through life drunk, trying to convince myself that I am not.

AA-related 'Alconym'
B U T  =  Being Unconvinced Totally.

 

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