Lightbulb AA Big Book Quote

"Yes, there is a long period of reconstruction ahead. We must take
the lead. A remorseful mumbling that we are sorry won't fill the bill
at all. We ought to sit down with the family and frankly analyze the
past as we now see it, being very careful not to criticize them.
Their defects may be glaring, but the chances are that our own
actions are partly responsible. So we clean house with the family,
asking each morning in meditation that our Creator show us the way of
patience, tolerance, kindliness and love."

~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, Into Action, pg. 83~
