Promise #7

October Roses 029


“We will

lose interest

in selfish things


gain interest

in our fellows.”


BB p 84


Better know as the Ninth Step promises,

this promise begins even before we complete

the Twelfth Step, ‘to carry this message’.

At Step Four we begin to see that out disease

has caused us to harm others.

During Steps Eight and Nine, we make amends

and again see how we have affected others.

By reading the book and going to meetings we

begin to become grateful for the blessings and miracles

which have brought us to the fine fellowship

of A. A. , the place where we begin to understand

that all of our needs have been met,

that our wants should be for the benefit of others.

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.
