AA Thought for the Day
September 24, 2018
For most of us, self-justification was the maker of excuses; excuses, of course,
for drinking, and for all kinds of crazy and damaging conduct. We had made the
invention of alibis a fine art. We had to drink because times were hard or times
were good. We had to drink because at home we were smothered with love or
got none at all . . . . . . And so it went, ad infinitum.
