AA Thought for the Day
October 17, 2020
The Acid Test
We are certain that our intelligence, backed by willpower, can rightly control
our inner lives and guarantee us success in the world we live in. This brave
philosophy, wherein each man plays God, sounds good in the speaking,
but it still has to meet the acid test: how well does it actually work?
One good look in the mirror ought to be answer enough for any alcoholic.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Three) p. 37
Thought to Ponder
