AA Thought for the Day
August 12, 2022
Time after time newcomers have tried to keep to themselves certain facts
about their lives. Trying to avoid this humbling experience, they have turned
to easier methods. Almost invariably they got drunk. Having persevered with
the rest of the program, they wondered why they fell. We think the reason is
that they never completed their housecleaning. They took inventory all right,
but hung on to some of the worst items in stock. They only thought they had
lost their egoism and fear; they only thought they had humbled themselves.
