AA Thought for the Day
August 25, 2022
We learned that we had to fully concede to our innermost
selves that we were alcoholics. This is the first step in recovery.
The delusion that we are like other people, or presently may be,
has to be smashed. We alcoholics are men and women who
have lost the ability to control our drinking. We know that no
real alcoholic ever recovers control.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (More About Alcoholism) p. 30
Thought to Ponder
When we try to control our drinking, we have already lost control.
A B C = Accept, Begin, Continue.
