AA Thought for the Day

RARELY HAVE we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path.
Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not, completely
give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who are
constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves.

Hello everyone. I'm Charlie J and I have Alcoholism. "Constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves." I like that the early A.A.'s didn't brand our fellow A.A.'s as bad or wrong, or they would never recover. It was one of A.A.'s co-founders who once said that recovery is like a great contagion. If we keep coming we will catch it. Leaving the door open for all Alcoholics, drinking or not. It is a fact in my case that I had to hit bottom, first. I had to know what my real life problem was, Alcoholism. It was not to be my first time to A.A. that I would stay stopped. I can assure our new A.A. friends and our fellow A.A.'s that there is a simple solution. It's found in the pages of the book Alcoholics Anonymous. I know in my case I was one drink from never knowing my own name again. So I am grateful that through Divine Providence that a Higher Power took pity on me and allowed me to find my way back to A.A. Thank you and "Keep It Simple."
