AA Thought for the Day
March 6, 2023
In our belief any scheme of combating alcoholism which proposes to
shield the sick man from temptation is doomed to failure. If the alcoholic
tries to shield himself he may succeed for a time, but he usually winds
up with a bigger explosion than ever. We have tried these methods.
These attempts to do the impossible have always failed.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Working With Others) p. 101
Thought to Ponder . . .
Sobriety without action is fantasy.
F E A R = Frantic Efforts at Avoiding Responsibilities.
