In a letter Bill W. wrote in 1940, he stated: “At first, the remedy for my personal difficulties seemed so obvious that I could not imagine any alcoholic turning the proposition down were it properly presented to him. Believing so firmly that Christ can do anything, I had the unconscious conceit to suppose that He would do everything through me–right then and in the manner I chose. After six months, I had to admit that not a soul had surely laid hold of the Master–not excepting myself.” [As Bill Sees It (New York, NY: Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc., 1967), 114]
