To A New Freedom


” I can remember

how the agonies

of alcoholism,

the pain of rebellion,

and the thwarted pride,

have often led me

to God’s grace,

and so to a new freedom.”


As Bill ‘Sees It       p 266



Those feelings which caused the most horrible

emotional pains; the feelings of isolation, resentment,

anger, hurt pride, and the uncontrollable urge to drink more.

Stuff the feelings, one drink will do just fine. (NOT)

Doing as the Steps suggest we learn a new way of thinking,

a positive pathway to becoming the person you

and your Higher Power know you can become.

Forgiveness, one of the many of God’s graces allows

the soul to move into the light of being positive.

Today, forgive, you do not have to forget, but move on to a place

where positive will give your life a new freedom.

Recovery is being led to God’s grace.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
