“The unity, the effectiveness,
and even the survival of A.A.
will always depend upon
our continued willingness to
give up some of our personal
ambitions and desires
for the common safety and welfare.”
~ As Bill Sees It p 220
As a drunk it was always about me,
in recovery it becomes all about we.
Compromise, balance, and agreement, words that are
foreign to the active alcoholic are words to those in recovery
that provide serenity and peace of mind.
To be restored to sane thinking is learning how
to use these words honestly in all of our affairs.
Recovery is to give up some of our personal ambitions and desires.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
