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

"A certain American businessman had ability, good sense, and high character.  For years he had floundered from one sanitarium to another. ...placing himself in the care of a celebrated physician...finished his treatment with unusual confidence.  His physical and mental condition were unusually good.  Above all, he believed he had acquired such a profound knowledge of the inner workings of his mind and its hidden springs that relapse was unthinkable.  Nevertheless, he was drunk in a short time."
