For me, alcohol wears many masks, and the disguises it puts on demonstrate how cunning it can be.
Sometimes, I don’t even realize that I’m thinking about alcohol when I’m justifying resentments, enjoying self-pity, or nourishing fear.
But because I’m an alcoholic, that’s exactly what I am doing, and AA makes those connections for me.
I need AA to strip the mask from alcohol. There it lurks behind my character defects and negative feelings — "cunning, baffling, powerful!"

Thought to Ponder . . .
If I want to remove my character defects, I’ll have to stop doing them!
