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

"All of us felt at times that we were regaining control, but such intervals--usually brief--were inevitably followed by still less control which led in time to pitiful and incomprehensible demoralization.  We are convinced to a man that alcoholics of our type are in the grip of a progressive illness.  Over any considerable period we get worse, never better."
