The AA Disclaimer.
all we can say, many who are real alcoholics are not going
to believe they are in that class. By every form of self-deception
and experimentation, they will try to prove themselves exceptions
to the rule, therefore nonalcoholic.
anyone who is showing inability to control his drinking
can do the right-about-face and drink like a gentleman,
our hats are off to him. Heaven knows, we have tried hard
enough and long enough to drink like other people!"
