AA Thought for the Day

Obsession
When men and women pour so much alcohol into themselves
that they destroy their lives, they commit a most unnatural act.
Defying their instinctive desire for self-preservation, they seem bent
upon self-destruction. They work against their own deepest instinct.
As they are humbled by the terrific beating administered by alcohol,
the grace of God can enter them and expel their obsession.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Six) p. 64

Thought to Ponder
God enters us through our wounds.

AA-related 'Alconym'
F E A R  =  Fighting Ego Against Reality.

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