Daily Reflections


We learned that we had to fully concede to our innermost selves that
we were alcoholics.  This is the first step in recovery.  The delusion that
we are like other people, or presently may be, has to be smashed.
Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 30

I came to Alcoholics Anonymous because I was no longer able to
control my drinking.  It was either my wife’s complaining about my
drinking, or maybe the sheriff forced me to go to A.A. meetings, or
perhaps I knew, deep down inside, that I couldn’t drink like others, but
I was unwilling to admit it because the alternative terrified me.
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women united against
a common, fatal disease.  Each one of our lives is linked to every other,
much like the survivors on a life raft at sea.  If we all work together, we
can get safely to shore.
