Daily Reflections


The fact is that most alcoholics, for reasons yet
obscure, have lost the power of choice in drink. Our
so-called willpower becomes practically nonexistent.

My powerlessness over alcohol does not cease when I
quit drinking. In sobriety I still have no choice – I
can’t drink. The choice I do have is to pick up and
use the “kit of spiritual tools” (Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 25).
When I do that, my Higher Power relieves me of my lack
of choice – and keeps me sober one more day. If I could
choose not to pick up a drink today, where then would
be my need for A.A. or a Higher Power?
