For Today:

“Practicing A.A.’s remaining eleven Steps means the adoption 

of attitudes and actions that almost no alcoholic who is still

drinking can dream of taking. Who wishes to be rigorously

honest and tolerant? Who wants to confess his faults to

another and make restitution for harm done? Who cares

anything about a Higher Power, let alone meditation and 

prayer? Who wants to sacrifice time and energy in trying

to carry A.A.’s message to the next sufferer? No, the average

alcoholic, self-centered in the extreme, doesn’t care for this

prospect – unless he has to do these things in order to stay

alive himself.”
