Needed Power
If a mere code of morals or a better philosophy of life were sufficient
to overcome alcoholism, many of us would have recovered long ago.
But we found that such codes and philosophies did not save us,
no matter how much we tried. We could wish to be moral, we
could wish to be philosophically comforted, in fact, we could will
these things with all our might, but the needed power wasn’t there.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (We Agnostics) pp. 44 - 45

Thought to Ponder
Hope leads to faith if you let it.

AA-related 'Alconym'
W O W  =  Willingness Over Willpower.

Grateful to serve,
