"Once more: The alcoholic at certain times has no effective mental defense against the first drink. Except in a few rare cases, neither he nor any other human being can provide such a defense. His defense must come from a Higher Power."

Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, More About Alcoholism, pg. 43
