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.

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.
