AA Thought for the Day
(courtesy AA-Alive.net)

August 1, 2018

Pride lures us into making demands upon ourselves or upon others which 
cannot be met without perverting or misusing our God-given instincts. 
When the satisfaction of our instincts for sex, security, and society becomes 
the sole object of our lives, then pride steps in to justify our excesses.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 49

Thought to Ponder
The difference between pride and humility:
Pride is who is right. Humility is what is right.

AA-related 'Alconym'
P R I D E  =  Pretty Ridiculous Individual Directing Everything.

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
