Dr Silkworth is particularly emphatic on one point

  “Slips are not the fault of A.A. I have heard patients complain, when brought in for another drying out, that A.A. failed them. The truth, of course, is that they failed A.A.

 But this mental maneuvering to transfer the blame is obviously another indication of fallacious thinking. It is another symptom of the disease.”
