AA Thought for the Day

AA Thought for the Day
February 1, 2009

Going to Any Length
Our stories disclose in a general way what we used to be like,
what happened, and what we are like now.
If you have decided you want what we have
and are willing to go to any length to get it
-- then you are ready to take certain steps.
At some of these we balked.
We thought we could find an easier, softer way.
But we could not. With all the earnestness at our command,
we beg of you to be fearless and thorough from the very start.
Some of us have tried to hold on to our old ideas
and the result was nil until we let go absolutely
Remember that we deal with alcohol -- cunning, baffling, powerful!
Without help it is too much for us.

Reprinted from Alcoholics Anonymous [First Edition], Page 70.

Thought to Ponder....
Life didn't end when I got sober -- it started.
