AA Thought for the Day
February 9, 2019
The tyrant alcohol wielded a double-edged sword over us: first we were smitten
by an insane urge that condemned us to go on drinking, and then by an allergy
of the body that insured we would ultimately destroy ourselves in the process.
Few indeed were those who, so assailed, had ever won through in singlehanded combat.
- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions (Step One) p. 22
Thought to Ponder
It's hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.
H O W = Honesty, Open-mindedness, Willingness.

Grateful to serve,
