“They cited cases out of
their own experience
by the dozen.
This process snuffed out
the last flicker
of conviction that
I could do the job myself.”
Big Book, p. 42
Many a recovering alcoholic will tell you
that listening to others relate their experiences
was the straw that broke the camels back.
We identified with the feelings and we realized
that our lives had become unmanageable.
The biggest blow to the ego was when we realized
that all of those who had recovered were giving credit
to the fellowship and a Power greater than themselves,
they had not done it on their own.
Today, tell your story and give credit
where credit is due.
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.
