AA Thought for the Day
June 21, 2019
When first challenged to admit defeat, most of us revolted.
We had approached A.A. expecting to be taught self-confidence.
Then we had been told that so far as alcohol is concerned,
self-confidence was no good whatever; in fact, it was a total liability.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step One,) p. 22
Thought to Ponder
Avoidance is not the key; surrender opens the door.
W O W = Willingness Over Willpower.
Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
