The Honeymoon


“For most of us,

the first years of A.A.

are something like

a honeymoon.
. . .

“But when the honeymoon

has worn off, we are obliged

to take our lumps, like other people.”


As Bill Sees It    p  216


Beware of the “Pink Cloud.”

Just because you sobered up does not mean that

life will stop having its ups and downs.

Balance in your life and a realistic approach to living

are the rewards of the A. A. program that is utilized

on a daily basis.

Have faith, if God brings you to it ,

He will see you through it.

Recovery is to survive after the honeymoon is over.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
