AA Thought for the Day
(courtesy AA-Alive.net)

January 14, 2021

The philosophy of self-sufficiency is not paying off. Plainly enough, it is a
bone-crushing juggernaut whose final achievement is ruin. Therefore, we
who are alcoholics can consider ourselves fortunate indeed. Each of us has
had his own near-fatal encounter with the juggernaut of self-will, and has
suffered enough under its weight to be willing to look for something better.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Three) pp. 37 - 39

Thought to Ponder
I can't do God's will my way.

AA-related 'Alconym'
