Strenuous Work
But when the broker gave him Dr. Silkworth’s description of alcoholism and its
hopelessness, the physician began to pursue the spiritual remedy for his malady
with a willingness he had never before been able to muster. He sobered, never
to drink again up to the moment of his death in 1950. This seemed to prove that
one alcoholic could affect another as no nonalcoholic could. It also indicated that
strenuous work, one alcoholic with another, was vital to permanent recovery.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (Foreward To Second Edition) pp. xvi - xvii
