AA Thought for the Day
January 7, 2023
Dependence on God
The minute we put our work on a service plane, the alcoholic commences
to rely upon our assistance rather than upon God. He clamors for this or that,
claiming he cannot master alcohol until his material needs are cared for.
Nonsense. Some of us have taken very hard knocks to learn this truth: Job
or no job—wife or no wife—we simply do not stop drinking so long as we
place dependence upon other people ahead of dependence on God.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Working With Others) p. 98
