Pride Blindness
When we early AAs got our first glimmer of how spiritually prideful we could be,
we coined this expression: "Don't try to get too damned good by Thursday!"
That old-time admonition may look like another one of those handy alibis that
can excuse us from trying our best. Yet a closer view reveals just the contrary.
This is our AA way of warning against pride-blindness,
and the imaginary perfections we do not possess.
- The Language of the Heart, p. 255

Thought to Ponder
Swallowing my pride will not get me drunk.

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,
peyton h
