Suggestions

.

“There are few absolutes

in the Twelve Steps.

Most Steps are open to

interpretation, based

on the experience and

outlook of the individual”.

.

As Bill See It    p 191

.

There are 40 must in the first 164 pages of the

big book of Alcoholics Anonymous, however,

they are limited to actions that must be taken

if one is to change their alcoholic behaviors.

How you take those actions are the suggestions that

are open to interpretation.

Easy does it, but just do it, you must.

Recovery is being willing to take suggestions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Trust Me

.

But does trust

require that we

be blind to other

people’s motives

or,

indeed to our own.”

.

As Bill Sees It      p 144

.

.

Trust me, but how far? ? ?

Remember, I was an active alcoholic that was

always practicing the art of lying, cheating and stealing.

Today, I would like to say that I am always as honest as Abe,

however, I have been know to relapse

into that old stinking thinking and I should be trusted

only as far as the next prayer and or meeting that we

say together or attend together.

Repeat after me,

“Trust is earned, one sober step at a time.”

Recovery is  learning how to trust.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
