Look In The Mirror


“This brave philosophy,

wherein each man played God,

sounded good in the speaking,

but it still had to meet

the acid test: How well did

it actually work?

One good look in the mirror

was answer enough.”


As Bill Sees It     p 225


Playing God took me to my bottom.

I could not see how alcohol was lying to me,

telling me I was God, all the while trying to kill me.

The universe abhors suicide.

Faith, trusting in my Higher Power ,

which I choose to call God,

and working the steps of A.A. has allowed me

to find a pathway to serenity, peace of mind and a

life that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is honestly admitting that we are not God.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
