We Began To Conform

Then,

as time confirmed

the seeming rightness


of our basic principles,


we began to conform


because it was


the right to do so.”

It took some time but what has resulted is a program

that will work for anyone and everyone.

For those who have failed, they were not thoroughly honest

or they failed to go to any length (do the work) to achieve

the freedom from the obsessions and compulsions

brought about by the disease of alcoholism.

It works if you work it.

Recovery is to conform to the principles that have worked.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Willingness To Give

.
“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.
