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.

Our Chief Responsibility

.

“Our chief

responsibility

to the newcomer

is an adequate

presentation of

the program.”

.

As Bill Sees It     p  105

.

Make no claims about the program, except

as to how it has affected your life.

If you are honest and they want what you have

the results will be in the hands of God.

Today, remember that staying sober is your

primary commitment, so that a responsible you

can better carry the message to the newcomer.

Recovery is to remember our chief responsibility.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
