A Lifetime Process

lania flowers August 008


“When I stopped drinking I began

a lifetime process of recovery from

unruly emotions, painful relationships,

and unmanageable situations.

This process is too much for most of us

without help from a Higher Power

and our friends in the Fellowship.”


Daily Reflections,  p. 105


The depressing negativity of alcoholism always

made life difficult and much of the time unbearable.

What the Big Book and the fellowship of AA taught me,

and I know now to be the truth, recovery is a lifetime

process that must be practiced one day at a time.

When in constant contact with my Higher Power

and being involved with the fellowship

life has become serene, peaceful

and positively enjoyable.

Today, trust the process.

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.
