My Recovery


Due to copyright ownership

the use of AA material is not

permitted to be used in a

personal blog, ergo,

I will quote many

of the slogans that I have

been exposed to in my few

twenty-four hours in the

rooms, and/or I will make it up

as I go along.

Quoting myself :  

“An expectation is a resentment awaiting to be born.”

When I first entered the rooms and it was suggested that I find

a Higher Power and I was told I could use the Door Knob, a Tree,

the Fellowship, anything that was tangible to me

but not an individual because all humans are fallible.

I know that God answers all prayers,

not always the way I expect them to be answered.

Prayers are answered in God’s time and in the manner

He will determine.

The only thing that I was told to expect was,

providing that I did not drink, that the promises will come true,

all 147 included in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Today, lower your expectations and know that you can have

a great day, one day at a time.
