Bankruptcy
No other kind of bankruptcy is like this one.
Alcohol, now become the rapacious creditor,
bleeds us of all self-sufficiency and all will to resist its demands.
Once this stark fact is accepted, our bankruptcy as going human concerns
is complete. But upon entering AA we soon take quite another view of this
absolute humiliation. We perceive that only through utter defeat
are we able to take our first steps toward liberation and strength.
 
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 21

Thought to Ponder
Avoidance is not the key; surrender opens the door.

AA-related 'Alconym'
A B C  =  Accept, Begin, Continue.

Good evening all, Tony, alcoholic. This week I went to the dentist, terrible toothache. When I went into the dentist, I was in pain. The dentist found the offending tooth and removed it. As I left the surgery, I was still in pain. But it was a different pain, a healing pain. For me it's the same with Step One. The pain of alcoholism got me into a chair at an AA meeting. When I left my first meeting, I was still in pain, but a different pain, a healing pain. All Step One did for me was to identify where the pain was coming from.
