AA Thought for the Day

The Root
Selfishness—self-centeredness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles.
Driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity,
we step on the toes of our fellows and they retaliate. Sometimes they hurt us,
seemingly without provocation, but we invariably find that at some time in the past
we have made decisions based on self which later placed us in a position to be hurt.
 
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 62

Thought to Ponder
The smallest package in the world is an alcoholic all wrapped up in himself.

AA-related 'Alconym'
W I S D O M  =  When Into Self, Discover Our Motives.

 

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