Alone No More

.

.

.

“Never again,

my pains and problems

notwithstanding,

would I experience my

former desolation.

I saw the universe to be

lighted by God’s love;

I was alone no more.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 51

The disease of alcoholism wants the sufferer to isolate,

be alone, push away anyone who loves them and to kill themselves.

The disease is cunning, baffling and powerful and it is the only disease

that tells the afflicted that they do not have a disease.

Recovery is to recognize the disease and to have the faith

that a loving Higher Power can give them a daily reprieve

from the clutches of the disease.

Pray, join the fellowship of AA, follow a few sinmple suggestions

and never be alone again.

Recovery is to never be alone.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Very Real Freedom

.

Looking back,

we see that

our freedom

to chose badly

was not, after all,

a very real freedom.”

.

~  As Bill Sees It      p124

.

Free will, a blessing or  bad fortune, ill will,  curse,

or bad luck.

For the drunk it was an excuse to drink.

Why did the alcoholic drink? ? ?

Because he could.

Remember the paradox, surrender the old life

so that we can be reborn with a new life

that is a real freedom.

Today, work the Steps and give your will and your life

over to a Higher Power of your understanding.

Recovery is to do the will of a loving Higher Power.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
