The Twelfth Promise



“We will suddenly realize

that God is doing for us

what we could not do

for ourselves.”


BB p 84



The Ninth Step promises that appear on pp 83 & 84

of the Big Book are the most well know, however

they are but twelve of the 147 promises held within

the words of the book.

The twelfth promise materializes when we

let go and let God and realize that the fear has disappeared.

Don’t drink, go to a meeting, talk with another alcoholic

and know that the promise of a life that is beyond

your wildest dreams is yours for the asking.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
