Too Great a Price

One AA member puts it this way:

"I know now that stopping in for a drink will never again be -- for me -- simply killing a few minutes and leaving a buck on the bar.

In exchange for that drink, what I would plunk down now is my bank account, my family, our home, our car, my job, my sanity, and probably my life. It's too big a price, too big a risk."

He remembers his last drunk, not his first drink.
