Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 544

Final Thought:

"'The only real freedom a human being can ever know is doing what you ought to do because you want to do it.' This great experience that released me from the bondage of hatred and replaced it with love is really just another affirmation of the truth I know: I get everything I need in Alcoholics Anonymous—and everything I need I get. And when I get what I need, I invariably find that it was just what I wanted all the time."

Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 552
