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

"We are like men who have lost their legs; they never grow new ones. Neither does there appear to be any kind of treatment which will make alcoholics of our kind like other men. In some instances there has been brief recovery, followed always by a still worse relapse."
