A Quote by Alcoholics Anonymous on alcoholics anonymous, the big book, recovery, and there is a solution

"Once in a while he (the alcoholic) may tell the truth.
And the truth, strange to say, is usually that he has
no more idea why he took that first drink than you have.
Some drinkers have excuses with which they are satisfied part of the time.
But in their hearts they really do not know why they do it."
