“If we are painstaking
about this phase of our
development, we will be
amazed before we are
half way through.”
BB p 83
The twelve 9th step promises on pp 83 & 84 of the Big Book
are among the more familiar of the 147 promises
found throughout the book.
The first promise, however, reminds us
that we must do the work painstakingly
if we want the promises to materialize.
The amazement is good, better
and the best life most of us have ever lived.
Today, don’t drink, go to a meeting, talk with another drunk
and be amazed at how life is mostly happy, joyous and free.
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.
