AA Thought for the Day
July 16, 2018
The Fifth Step
When we decide who is to hear our story, we waste no time.
We have a written inventory and we are prepared for a long talk.
We explain to our partner what we are about to do and why we have to do it.
He should realize that we are engaged upon a life-and-death errand.
Most people approached in this way will be glad to help;
they will be honored by our confidence.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 75
