AA Thought for the Day
January 21, 2023
So our troubles, we think, are basically of our own making. They arise out
of ourselves, and the alcoholic is an extreme example of self-will run riot,
though he usually doesn't think so. Above everything, we alcoholics must
be rid of this selfishness. We must, or it kills us! God makes that possible.
And there often seems no way of entirely getting rid of self without His aid.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (How It Works) p. 62
Thought to Ponder . . .
Avoidance is not the key; surrender opens the door.
N O W = No Other Way.
