the Inner Voice

"Long before nagging and pressures from others concerning my excessive use of alcohol made any impression on me, the nagging voice of conscience – my own inner voice of truth and right – apprised me of the irrevocable fact that I had lost control of alcohol, that I was powerless. I know now that the inner voice was God, as I understand Him, speaking. For, as I had been taught from earliest memory and as A.A. has emphasized, God – or good – emanates from within each of us." – Lakewood, Ohio, USA
