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

January 8, 2022

Great Obsession
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. We learned that we had to
fully concede to our innermost selves that we were alcoholics.
This is the first step in recovery.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (More About Alcoholism) p. 30

Thought to Ponder
When we try to control our drinking, we have already lost control.

AA-related 'Alconym'
I S M  =   I Sabotage Myself..

Thanks to all of you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
peyton
