“They took inventory
all right, but hung on
to some of the worst
items in stock.
They only thought
they had lost their
egoism and fear;
they only thought they had humbled themselves.”
Big Book, p. 73
Thinking is the bane of the active alcoholic
and it is also the possible destroyer of the drunk
who is not totally honest when working the steps of A.A..
When you think that you are humble, you’re not.
One of the better lessons given by many sponsors
is that if it has a name, someone has done it before you
and the guilt and shame will go away
when you continue to work the steps
and when you honestly do your inventory.
Honesty is the first spiritual principal.
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.
