Self-centered Fear

“The chief activator

of our defects

has been

self-centered fear . .


Twelve and Twelve  p 76


Mostly we had fear, because

we may not get what we wanted, because

“I want what I want and I want it now,”

instant gratification.

Therefore, we cheated, lied, stole and manipulated

because, you owed us, the world owed us

and we were only asking for what was owed us.

Recovery has shown us that a loving Higher Power

has provided for all of our needs,

the wants are no longer important.

Today, enjoy what is important; serenity, peace of mind,

freedom from fear and guilt and the blessing to know

“it’s not all about me ! ! !”

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.
