From the Grass Roots
I HAVE BEEN LUCKY during the last five years in that I have not experienced any slips. This might be attributed to two reasons. First is a feeling of fear. When I come in contact with someone who has had a slip I fear what might happen to me if I again took that first drink. The second reason you might class as arrogance: When I see or hear of someone who has attained a certain goal in their fight for sobriety, I feel a certain arrogance inside which says, "If they can do it so can I." I can!
