“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.
