A Fatal Progression
Since Step One requires an admission that our lives have become
unmanageable, how could people such as these take this Step?
It was obviously necessary to raise the bottom the rest of us had hit
to the point where it would hit them. By going back in our own drinking
histories, we could show that years before we realized it we were out
of control, that our drinking even then was no mere habit, that it was
indeed the beginning of a fatal progression.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step One) p. 23

Thought to Ponder
I have learned that I did not get here a day early or a drink short.
