The Big Book

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day


the dictionary says that worry is a state of anxiety and uncertainty

over actual or potential problems.

Worry refers to the thoughts, images and emotions

of a negative nature

in which mental attempts are made[vague]

to avoid anticipated potential threats.[1]

We commonly worry about personal issues

such as health or finances,

or broader issues such as environmental pollution and social or technological change.

Most people experience short-lived periods of worry in their lives without incident;

indeed, a moderate amount of worrying may even have positive effects,

if it prompts people to take precautions

But we are alcoholics, so I suspect our story will include the lack of said precautions
