AA Thought for the Day
January 12, 2023
The alcoholic is like a tornado roaring his way through the lives of others.
Hearts are broken. Sweet relationships are dead. Affections have been
uprooted. Selfish and inconsiderate habits have kept the home in turmoil.
We feel a man is unthinking when he says that sobriety is enough. He is
like the farmer who came up out of his cyclone cellar to find his home
ruined. To his wife, he remarked, "Don’t see anything the matter here, Ma.
Ain’t it grand the wind stopped blowin’?"
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Into Action) p. 82
Thought to Ponder . . .
Sobriety without action is fantasy.
N U T S = Not Using The Steps.
