AA Thought for the Day
March 20, 2018
Intelligence and Willpower
We are certain that our intelligence, backed by willpower, can rightly control our inner lives
and guarantee us success in the world we live in.

but it still has to meet the acid test: how well does it actually work?
One good look in the mirror ought to be answer enough for any alcoholic.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 37
