A.A. COMES OF AGE, p. 311
The great mystery is: "Why do some of us die alcoholic deaths, fighting to preserve the 'independence' of our ego, while others seem to sober up effortlessly in A.A.?" Help from a Higher Power, the gift of sobriety, came to me when an otherwise unexplained desire to stop drinking coincided with my willingness to accept the suggestions of the men and women of A.A. I had to surrender, for only by reaching out to God and my fellows could I be rescued
................."A daily reprieve contingent on the maintainence of our spiritual condition. "

I know I've been hitting this twice a day, but to pull this off I need full commitment from Day Dave and Night Dave. Night Dave is the one that really needs the reminders! 24 more please!
