AA Thought for the Day
October 31, 2017
Beyond Human Aid
The alcoholic may say to himself in the most casual way, "It won’t burn me this time,
so here’s how!" Or perhaps he doesn’t think at all... ...When this sort of thinking
is fully established in an individual with alcoholic tendencies, he has probably
placed himself beyond human aid, and unless locked up, may die or go permanently insane.
These stark and ugly facts have been confirmed by legions of alcoholics throughout history.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, pp. 24 - 25
