This program isn’t for people who need it; it’s for people who want it. If everyone who needed this program attended meetings we’d have to rent out stadiums, not rooms and dining halls.

Only the desperate can become willing enough to do what we do to get what we have. For years I needed recovery, but I still had better ideas.

It wasn’t until I had hit bottom and was willing to abandon myself to this program that I began to recover. I now understand ‘I wish you desperation,’ because it is only by hitting bottom that one can go from needing this to wanting it. —Wisdom of the Rooms
