AA Thought for the Day

August 20, 2019

Without Defense
The fact is that most alcoholics, for reasons yet obscure,
have lost the power of choice in drink.
Our so-called will power becomes practically nonexistent.
We are unable, at certain times, to bring into our consciousness
with sufficient force the memory of the suffering and humiliation
of even a week or a month ago.
We are without defense against the first drink.
 
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (There Is A Solution) p. 24

Thought to Ponder
The first drink has the last say.

AA-related 'Alconym'
I S M  =  Incredibly Short Memory.

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
