AA Thought for the Day
January 8, 2021
Countless Vain Attempts
Therefore, it is not surprising that our drinking careers have been
characterized by countless vain attempts to prove we could drink
like other people. The idea that somehow, someday he will control
and enjoy his drinking is the great obsession of every abnormal
drinker. The persistence of this illusion is astonishing. Many
pursue it into the gates of insanity or death.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (More About Alcoholism) p. 30
Thought to Ponder
Within our wonderful new world, we have found
freedom from our fatal obsession.
A A = Absolute Abstinence.
