Life Itself

pine is clouds 086


“How to translate

a right mental conviction

into a right emotional result,

and so into easy, happy

and good living,

is the problem of life itself.”


Grapevine,  Jan.  1958
As Bill Sees It,  p. 103



When you are living at the bottom of a negative cesspool,

being held down by the depressant alcohol,

if you have any emotions at all,

they are usually not happy or good.

Once you have let go and let God remove

the compulsion and obsession to drink

the program of A. A. is no longer about ‘not drinking’

it is about ‘right living’.

The program will set you on the right spiritual pathway

to happy, joyous and free, it is up to the individual

to continue their own translation of how the program

should work for him or her.

Today, live life on life’s terms or better yet

live life on God’s terms.

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.
