Honesty


“RARELY HAVE we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path. Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves. There are such unfortunates. They are not at fault; they seem to have been born that way. They are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of living which demands rigorous honesty. Their chances are less than average. There are those, too, who suffer from grave emotional and mental disorders, but many of them do recover if they have the capacity to be honest.”

Honesty is the core.

Active addicts lie to get their needs met. We hope our problems will all go away on their own, but they don’t and eventually we have to make a decision to live or die.

The point of grace comes. We tell the truth to ourselves and others, admit powerlessness and we are free.

Bottom line.

We are powerless over alcohol. Can’t drink the stuff…makes crazy…so don’t…
