AA Thought for the Day
January 23, 2018
The First Milestone
When we have finally admitted without reservation that we are powerless over alcohol,
we are apt to breathe a great sigh of relief, saying, “Well, thank God that's over!
I'll never have to go through that again!” Then we learn, often to our consternation,
that this is only the first milestone on the new road we are walking.
