Since todsys we celebrated Fathers Day, Im a bit wiped out, so this passage should suffice:
The AA way of living is not an easy one.  But it’s an adventure in living that is really worthwhile.  And it’s so much better than our old drunken way of living that there’s no comparison.  Our lives without A.A. would be worth nothing.  With A.A., we have a chance to live reasonably good lives.  It’s worth the battle, no matter how tough the going is from day to day.  Isn’t it worth the battle?
