Do The Right Thing

Email of the Day: “Trying” Is for People With No Backbone

By Dr. Laura on January, 6 2023
Email of the Day: I THOUGHT I Was Being My Husband’s Girlfriend

When my husband announced to me he was quitting drinking and beginning AA, I said to him, “So, what was the tipping point?” To which he responded, “I don’t even want to admit this, but who’s that bitchy lady you always make me listen to on long car rides? Dr. Laura? Well, she said something that stuck with me. She said, ‘There is no try. You commit. Trying is for people with no backbone.’ Her words stuck with me, rolled around in my head and wouldn’t go away.”


So, this email is to thank you. Thank you for being that “bitchy lady” who won’t accept halfway and who demands the presence of a backbone!
