A Quote by Bill Wilson on alcoholics anonymous, the big book, recovery, high resolve, and bill wilson

 "...I got a promising business opportunity. Stocks were at the low point of 1932, and I had somehow formed a group to buy.  I was to share generously in the profits.  Then I went on a prodigious bender, and the chance vanished.  I woke up.  This had to be stopped.  I saw I could not take so much as one drink. I was through forever. Before then, I had written lots of sweet promises, but my wife happily observed that this time I meant business.  And so i did.  Shortly afterward I came home drunk.  There had been no fight. Where had been my high resolve?" __Bill Wilson
