Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, The Family Afterward

THE FAMILY AFTERWARD


The head of the house ought to remember that he is mainly to blame for what befell his home. He can

scarcely square the account in his lifetime. But he

must see the danger of over-concentration on financial

success. Although financial recovery is on the way for

many of us, we found we could not place money first.

For us, material well-being always followed spiritual progress; it never preceded.

Since the home has suffered more than anything else, it is well that a man exert himself there. He is

not likely to get far in any direction if he fails to show

unselfishness and love under his own roof. We know

there are difficult wives and families, but the man who

is getting over alcoholism must remember he did much

to make them so.
