AA Thought for the Day

Exceptions to the Rule
Despite all we can say, many who are real alcoholics are
not going to believe they are in that class. By every form
of self-deception and experimentation, they will try to prove
themselves exceptions to the rule, therefore nonalcoholic.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (More About Alcoholism) p. 31
Thought to Ponder
I would rather go through life sober, believing I am an alcoholic;
than go through life drunk, trying to convince myself that I am not.
