True Ambition

“True ambition is not

what we thought it was.

True ambition is the

deep desire to live

usefully and walk humbly

under the grace of God.”



Twelve and Twelve pp 124-25


As a drunk my true ambition

was to make sure that all of my wants and needs

were tken care of first, even if that meant using

and abusing family and friends.

For the recovering alcoholic, true ambition is

serenity, peace of mind and gratitude

for living a simple spiritual program that puts

other peoples needs on a par with our own.

Today, thank your Higher Power for being a miracle

and find pleasure in sharing that miracle.

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.
