came out of
trying to give,
not out of
The Best of Bill, pp 46-47
As the self-centered, selfish, egotistical drunk
it was always just about me.
Recovery is the opposite of the active addiction,
whatever I did as a drunk I had to reverse.
Today I try to give back that which was so freely given to me,
I have also received a fellowship
that can use all of the help it can get;
secretaries, treasurers, district reps, people to set up,
coffee makers, people to clean up and a list of other servants
who are willing to be there whenever someone reaches out for
the hand of A.A. and for that, I too am responsible.
Today, find out how much giving can make
your sobriety that much more enjoyable.
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.
