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.

The Ground Glass

.

“The moral inventory . . .

has the effect of taking

the ground glass out

of us, the emotional

substance that still

cuts and inhibits.”

.

As Bill Sees It      p. 140

.

The cut is the guilt, the shame, the remorse,

those feelings the drunk should have, but doesn’t,

at least not until he tries to get sober.

Love the A.A. saying:

the good news and the bad news of getting sober:

first the good news, you get your feelings back,

now for the bad news, you get your feelings back.

Remember: pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

Today, work the steps thoroughly

and learn to move on with living.

Recovery is removing the emotional substance

that still cuts and inhibits.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
