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

August 2, 2018

New Foundation
By now the newcomer has probably arrived at the following conclusions:
that his character defects, representing instincts gone astray, have been
the primary cause of his drinking and his failure at life; that unless he is
now willing to work hard at the elimination of the worst of these defects,
both sobriety and peace of mind will still elude him; that all the faulty
foundation of his life will have to be torn out and built anew on bedrock.
 
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 50

Thought to Ponder
If I want God to remove my character defects, I'll have to stop doing them.

AA-related 'Alconym'
A A  =  Altered Attitudes.

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