We have shown how we got out from under.
You say, "Yes, I’m willing.
But am I to be consigned to a life
where I shall be stupid, boring and glum,
like some righteous people I see?
I know I must get along without liquor,
but how can I? Have you a sufficient substitute?"
Yes, there is a substitute and it is vastly more
than that. It is a fellowship in Alcoholics Anonymous.
There you will find release from care, boredom and worry.
Your imagination will be fired. Life will mean something at last.
The most satisfactory years of your existence lie ahead. P152
Its true :-)
