AA Thought for the Day
June 12, 2018
Without a Defense
The almost certain consequences that follow taking even a glass of beer
do not crowd into the mind to deter us. If these thoughts occur, they are
hazy and readily supplanted with the old threadbare idea that this time
we shall handle ourselves like other people. There is a complete failure
of the kind of defense that keeps one from putting his hand on a hot stove.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 24
Thought to Ponder
The ultimate defense against the first drink is a spiritual one.
A A = Absolute Abstinence.
Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
