AA Thought for the Day
August 15, 2019
Accepting my Higher Power did not fully change my attitude of
resistance. It just made yielding to instruction a more rational and
acceptable mode of behavior. For each step, I still had to go through
the process of recognizing that I had no control over my drinking.
I had to understand that the steps of Alcoholics Anonymous had
helped others and could help me. I had to realize that if I did want
sobriety, I had better do the steps whether I liked them or not. Every
time I ran into trouble, I ultimately found that I was resisting change.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (A Late Start) p. 541
Thought to Ponder
Pain is the measure of our resistance to change.
A A = Attitude Adjustment.
