Face The Music – As Bill Sees It #251

Don’t be too discouraged about that slip. Practically always, we drunks learn the hard way.

Your idea of moving on to somewhere else may be good, or it may not. Perhaps you have got into an emotional or economic jam that can’t be well handled where you are. But maybe you are doing just what all of us have done, at one time or another: Maybe you are running away. Why don’t you try to think that through again carefully?

“Are you really placing recovery first, or are you making it contingent upon other people, places, or circumstances? You may find it ever so much better to face the music right where you are now, and, with the help of the A.A. program, work through it. Before you make a decision, weigh it in these terms.”

Letter, 1949
