AA Thought for the Day
October 11, 2017
“Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs."
Hence it was most evident that a solitary self-appraisal, and the admission of our defects
based upon that alone, wouldn't be nearly enough. We'd have to have outside help if we were
surely to know and admit the truth about ourselves—the help of God and another human being.
Only by discussing ourselves, holding back nothing, only by being willing to take advice and accept direction
could we set foot on the road to straight thinking, solid honesty, and genuine humility.
