Hit Bottom
It was then discovered that when one alcoholic had planted in the mind of another the true nature 
of his malady, that person could never be the same again. Following every spree, he would say to himself, 
“Maybe those A.A.'s were right . . .” After a few such experiences, often years before the onset of 
extreme difficulties, he would return to us convinced. He had hit bottom as truly as any of us. 
John Barleycorn himself had become our best advocate.

Thought to Ponder
I have learned that I did not get here a day early or a drink short.

In grateful service,
