...is sobriety enough...

"The alcoholic is like a tornado roaring his way through the lives of others. Hearts are broken. Sweet relationships are dead. Affections have been uprooted. Selfish and inconsiderate habits have kept the home in turmoil. We feel a man is unthinking when he says that sobriety is enough. . . there is a long period of reconstruction ahead. We must take the lead . . . So we clean house with the family, asking each morning in meditation that our Creator show us the way of patience, tolerance, kindliness and love...The Spiritual life is not a theory. We have to live it."

Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 82 - 83
