AA Thought for the Day

Carry This Message
When he sees you know all about the drinking game, commence to
describe yourself as an alcoholic. Tell him how baffled you were, how
you finally learned that you were sick. Give him an account of the
struggles you made to stop. Show him the mental twist which leads to
the first drink of a spree. We suggest you do this as we have done it
in the chapter on alcoholism. If he is alcoholic, he will understand you
at once. He will match your mental inconsistencies with some of his own.
