Trust Me

.

But does trust

require that we

be blind to other

people’s motives

or,

indeed to our own.”

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.

Never Exclusive

.

We do not wish

to deny anyone

his chance to recover

from alcoholism.

We wish to be just

as inclusive as we can,

never exclusive.”

~ As Bill Sees It       p 186

.

It is not what we use, it is how we abuse.

Some alcoholics suffer from more than one ISM.

Race, religion, no religion, gender, no gender,

if one is willing to go to any lengths, follow a few suggestions,

and place principles before personalities, then they should

not be denied the opportunity to recover from their affliction,

however, Alcoholics Anonymous places alcohol first.

Recovery is to conform to the principles that have worked.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
