“When we chose
because we ‘ought to’
we were really doing better.
This time we were
earning some freedom,
ready for more.”
As Bill Sees It p124
Recovery is a process where we can measure our growth
by looking at the choices we make.
As Bill explained, entering A.A. we had no choice,
alcohol made our decisions for us.
Doing the steps we attempted to make the choices
that we “must” to stay sober, one day at a time.
Our next level of growth is accompanied by a little more
surrendering to the spiritual tools that have been laid at our feet.
We ‘ought to’ do the next right thing.
Recovery is learning to make better choices.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
