Alone No More

.

.

.

“Never again,

my pains and problems

notwithstanding,

would I experience my

former desolation.

I saw the universe to be

lighted by God’s love;

I was alone no more.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 51

The disease of alcoholism wants the sufferer to isolate,

be alone, push away anyone who loves them and to kill themselves.

The disease is cunning, baffling and powerful and it is the only disease

that tells the afflicted that they do not have a disease.

Recovery is to recognize the disease and to have the faith

that a loving Higher Power can give them a daily reprieve

from the clutches of the disease.

Pray, join the fellowship of AA, follow a few sinmple suggestions

and never be alone again.

Recovery is to never be alone.

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.
