Because We ‘Must’


“When we chose

because we “must”

this was not a

free choice either.

But it got s started

in the right direction.”

~ As Bill Sees It    p 124


As Bill explained it , when we first came into A.A.

we  had no choice, alcohol did all of our choosing for us.

In the beginning we were introduced to the Steps,

and though we were told that they were only suggestions,

there were more than a few “must” in the equation.

By making a better choice we were beginning our journey

towards a new freedom and a new happiness.

Recovery is learning to make better choices.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
