AA Thought for the Day
May 14, 2020
Power of Choice
The fact is that most alcoholics, for reasons yet obscure,
have lost the power of choice in drink.
Our so-called willpower 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.
I S M = Incredibly Short Memory.
