This is the source of the the 12 Step slogan “Think, Think, Think”?
An early Alcoholics Anonymous member Clarence Snyder explained that one of the early mechanical calculators came with a sign for the operator which said:
Think….about what you are about to do.
Think….of what you are doing.
Think….of what you have done.
Clarence explained that some drunk had a bunch made up and sent out to the AA groups in early 1944-45.”
