AA Thought for the Day
August 21, 2020
Essentials of Recovery
Most emphatically we wish to say that any alcoholic capable of honestly
facing his problems in the light of our experience can recover, provided
he does not close his mind to all spiritual concepts. He can only be
defeated by an attitude of intolerance or belligerent denial. We find that
no one need have difficulty with the spirituality of the program.
Willingness, honesty and open mindedness are the essentials of recovery.
But these are indispensable.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Appendix II, Spiritual Experience) p. 568
Thought to Ponder
Flexible people do not get bent out of shape.
H O W = Honesty, Open-mindedness, Willingness.
