AA Thought for the Day
July 1, 2020
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
