A quiet heart

When I got to AA in 1969, I heard a lot of words that were unfamiliar to me, but I didn’t pay much attention to them at the time since I had bigger fish to fry. I had a drinking problem and everything else took a back seat to that. I was overwhelmed by marital, legal and economic problems. Words like love, patience, spirituality and forgiveness were foreign to me. I didn’t see how they mattered when all I wanted to do was quit drinking.
