AA Thought for the Day
(courtesy AA-Alive.net)

Dear Readers, My deepest apologies for the misquoted source of yesterday's
Daily Thought.  The Thought is actually from Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.

January 17, 2020

An Opportunity
We find it a waste of time to keep chasing a man who
cannot or will not work with you. If you leave such a
person alone, he may soon become convinced that he
cannot recover by himself. To spend too much time on
any one situation is to deny some other alcoholic an
opportunity to live and be happy.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Working With Others) p. 96

Thought to Ponder
A.A. is not for people who need it, it's for people who want it.

AA-related 'Alconym'
S P O N S O R  =  Sober Person Offering Newcomers Suggestions On Recovery.

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