I'm Jittery and Alone

“We know what you are thinking.  You are saying to yourself, ‘I’m jittery and alone.  I couldn’t do that.’ But you can.  You forget that you have now just tapped a power much greater than yourself.  To duplicate, with such backing, what we have accomplished is only a matter of willingness, patience and labor.”
AA Big Book, A Vision for You page 163

Notes
