Look In The Mirror

.

“This brave philosophy,

wherein each man played God,

sounded good in the speaking,

but it still had to meet

the acid test: How well did

it actually work?

One good look in the mirror

was answer enough.”

.

Playing God took me to my bottom.

I could not see how alcohol was lying to me,

telling me I was God, all the while trying to kill me.

The universe abhors suicide.

Faith, trusting in my Higher Power ,

which I choose to call God,

and working the steps of A.A. has allowed me

to find a pathway to serenity, peace of mind and a

life that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is honestly admitting that we are not God.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Stop Preaching

.

“After failure
on my part to
dry up any drunks,
Dr. Silkworth
reminded me of
Prof.William James’s
observation that
truly transforming
spiritual experiences
are nearly always founded
on calamity and collapse.
“Stop preaching at them.”

It is all personal.

I can tell you how I recovered

but I cannot tell you how to recover.

Suggestion, go to as many meetings as you can

and talk to as many recovering individuals as you can

and take what you need and leave the rest.

Guaranteed, you will not get sober

the same way as your sponsor did.

Recovery is to follow the good examples

and lead by example, no preaching allowed.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
