AA Thought for the Day

Describe Yourself
When he sees you know all about the drinking game, commence to
describe yourself as an alcoholic. Tell him how baffled you were, how you
finally learned that you were sick. Give him an account of the struggles
you made to stop. Show him the mental twist which leads to the first drink
of a spree. We suggest you do this as we have done it in the chapter on
alcoholism. If he is alcoholic, he will understand you at once.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Working With Others) pp. 91 - 92

Thought to Ponder
I am responsible for the effort -- not the outcome.

AA-related 'Alconym'
A R T  =  Always Remain Teachable.

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
