The Alcoholic
He is often perfectly sensible and well balanced concerning everything except liquor,
but in that respect he is incredibly dishonest and selfish. He often possesses special
abilities, skills, and aptitudes, and has a promising career ahead of him.
He uses his gifts to build up a bright outlook for his family and himself,
and then pulls the structure down on his head by a senseless series of sprees.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 21

Thought to Ponder
Alcoholic drinking's three stages:  impulsive, compulsive, repulsive.

AA-related 'Alconym'
A L E  =  Alibis, Lies, Excuses.


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