The Old Game
Inwardly he would give anything to take half a dozen drinks and
get away with them. He will presently try the old game again,
for he isn’t happy about his sobriety. He cannot picture life without
alcohol. Some day he will be unable to imagine life either with
alcohol or without it. Then he will know loneliness such as few do.
He will be at the jumping-off place. He will wish for the end.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (A Vision For You) p. 152

Thought to Ponder
When I share my story and remember the last days of my drinking,
I remember the desperation of selling the last pieces of my soul.

AA-related 'Alconym'
