AA Thought for the Day

The Alcoholic
He is often perfectly sensible and well balanced concerning everything
except liquor, but in that respect he is incredibly dishonest and selfish.
He often possesses special abilities, skills, and aptitudes, and has a
promising career ahead of him. He uses his gifts to build up a bright
outlook for his family and himself, and then pulls the structure down on
his head by a senseless series of sprees.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (There Is A Solution) p. 21

Thought to Ponder
Alcoholic drinking's three stages: impulsive, compulsive, repulsive.

AA-related 'Alconym'
