For Our Lifetime

more 016


“We have entered

the world of the Spirit.

Our next function is

to grow in understanding

and effectiveness.

This is not an overnight matter.

It should continue for our lifetime.”


BB p 84


Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic.

Following the Ninth Step promises the Big Book

introduces us to the living steps,

the three steps ( 10, 11 and 12 ) that we must work

for the rest of our lifetime.

As the world changes we must learn to change

and accept God’s world as being

just the way it is going to be.

Learn to listen and listen every day

so that you may grow in the spirit

of the Power that keeps you sober.

Today, take your personal inventory,

pray, meditate, carry the message

and live these steps in all of your affairs.

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.
