Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“It must never be forgotten that the purpose of Alcoholics Anonymous is to sober up alcoholics. There is no religious or spiritual requirement for membership. No demands are made on anyone. An experience is offered which members may accept or reject. That is up to them.” (Bill Wilson)

Quote #2

Addiction does not care if you are rich or poor, black or white, young or old, male or female, single or married, religious or atheist. It does not care if you have plans, goals, aspirations, or dreams for your future. It wants to steal your soul and then take your life. But there is strength in numbers, and we recover when we have the support of other addicts in recovery.” (Anonymous)

Quote #3

After half a century in psychiatric practice, I know without a doubt that the source of addiction is spiritual deficiency. Irrespective of whether we are religious or atheist, all human beings are spiritual by nature and spirituality is the cornerstone of our recovery.” (Abraham Twerski)

Bonus Quote

“As an atheist, I am angry that we live in a society in which the plain truth cannot be spoken without offending 90% of the population.” (Sam Harris)
