AA Thought for the Day
December 1, 2022
Hideous Four Horsemen
As we became subjects of King Alcohol, shivering denizens of his mad
realm, the chilling vapor that is loneliness settled down. It thickened,
ever becoming blacker. Some of us sought out sordid places, hoping
to find understanding companionship and approval. Momentarily we
did—then would come oblivion and the awful awakening to face the
hideous Four Horsemen—Terror, Bewilderment, Frustration, Despair.

Thought to Ponder . . .
When I share my story and remember the last days of my drinking,
I remember the desperation of selling the last pieces of my soul.
