Because We ‘Must’


.

“When we chose

because we “must”

this was not a

free choice either.

But it got s started

in the right direction.”


~ As Bill Sees It    p 124

.

As Bill explained it , when we first came into A.A.

we  had no choice, alcohol did all of our choosing for us.

In the beginning we were introduced to the Steps,

and though we were told that they were only suggestions,

there were more than a few “must” in the equation.

By making a better choice we were beginning our journey

towards a new freedom and a new happiness.

Recovery is learning to make better choices.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

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.”

.

As Bill Sees It     p 225

.

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.
