AA Thought for the Day
March 17, 2018
The tragic truth is that if the man be a real alcoholic, the happy day may not arrive.
He has lost control. At a certain point in the drinking of every alcoholic, he passes
into a state where the most powerful desire to stop drinking is of absolutely no avail.
This tragic situation has already arrived in practically every case long before it is suspected.
The fact is that most alcoholics, for reasons yet obscure, have lost the power of choice in drink.

Thought to Ponder
When we try to control our drinking, we have already lost control.
A B C = Accept, Begin, Continue.
