Why is it that the alcoholic is so unwilling to accept responsibility?
I used to drink because of the things that other people did
to me. Once I came to A. A. I was told to look at where
I had been wrong. What did I have to do with all these
different matters? When I simply accepted that I had a part
in them, I was able to put it on paper and see it for what
it was--Humanness. I am not expected to be perfect!
I have made errors before and I will make them again.
To be honest about them allows me to accept them -- and
myself -- and those with whom I had the differences; from
there, recovery is just a short distance ahead.
