AA Thought for the Day
July 5, 2022
Phenomenon of Craving
All these, and many others, have one symptom in common: they
cannot start drinking without developing the phenomenon of craving.
This phenomenon, as we have suggested, may be the manifestation
of an allergy which differentiates these people, and sets them apart
as a distinct entity. It has never been, by any treatment with which
we are familiar, permanently eradicated. The only relief we have to
suggest is entire abstinence.
