As Bill Sees It #essentialsofrecovery

Our Problem Centers In The Mind, p. 130

We know that as long as the alcoholic keeps away from drink, he

usually reacts much like other men. We are equally positive that

once he takes any alcohol whatever into his system, something

happens, in both the bodily and the mental sense, which makes it

virtually impossible for him to stop. The experience of any alcoholic

will abundantly confirm this.

These observations would be academic and pointless if our friend

never took the first drink, thereby setting the terrible cycle in

motion. Therefore, the main problem of the alcoholic centers in his

mind, rather than in his body.
