AA Thought for the Day
August 7, 2018
Essentials of Recovery
Most emphatically we wish to say that any alcoholic capable of honestly
facing his problems in the light of our experience can recover, provided
he does not close his mind to all spiritual concepts. He can only be
defeated by an attitude of intolerance or belligerent denial.
We find that no one need have difficulty with the spirituality of the program.
Willingness, honesty and open mindedness are the essentials of recovery.
But these are indispensable.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 568
Thought to Ponder
Flexible people do not get bent out of shape.
H O W = Honesty, Open-mindedness, Willingness.
Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
