I made amends to my dad soon after I quit drinking. My words
fell on deaf ears since I had blamed him for my troubles.
Several months later I made amends to my dad again. This time
I wrote a letter in which I did not blame him nor mention
his faults. It worked, and at last I understood! My side of
the street is all that I'm responsible for and--thanks to
God and A.A.--it's clean for today.
