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

So let’s go to you first ??, and let’s talk about worry before program and what that looked like to you.
