Alcoholics Anonymous The Doctor’s Opinion | The Little Doctor Who Loved Drunks
A letter from Dr. Silkworth to Alcoholics Anonymous in 1939
Dr. Silkworth Defines Alcoholism –
“Of course an alcoholic ought to be freed from his physical craving
for liquor” – Big book XXVII
“We believe, and so suggested a few years ago, that the action of alcohol on these chronic alcoholics is a manifestation of an allergy; that the phenomenon of craving is limited to this class and never occurs in the average temperate drinker.” – Big book XXVIII
(NEVER means not one time!)
“We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unmanageable.”
God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; and Wisdom to know the difference. Thy will, not mine, be done.
Before coming to A.A., I always had excuses for taking a drink: “She said . . . ,” “He said . . . ,” “I got fired yesterday,” “I got a great job today.” No area of my life could be good if I drank again. In sobriety my life gets better each day. I must always remember not to drink, to trust God, and to stay active in A.A. Am I putting anything before my sobriety, God, and A.A. today?
