WE, OF Alcoholics Anonymous, are more than one hundred men and women
who have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body.
To show other alcoholics precisely how we have recovered is the main purpose of this book.
For them, we hope these pages will prove so convincing
that no further authentication will be necessary.

Thought to Ponder
When alcohol beat me to my knees, I found I was right where I needed to be.

Chris, Alcoholic. For me alcoholism is a three-fold disease... Mind, Body and Spirit. The reading says that we have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body. I came to that in Step 2 when the obsession *mind* and the allergy *body* was removed. Steps 3 through 12 are the Steps I took to stay in that recovered state. They are the action Steps. Those are what keep that obsession gone out of my mind and I will always be recovering from self. Thanks.
