A Very Real Freedom

.

Looking back,

we see that

our freedom

to chose badly

was not, after all,

a very real freedom.”

.

~  As Bill Sees It      p124

.

Free will, a blessing or  bad fortune, ill will,  curse,

or bad luck.

For the drunk it was an excuse to drink.

Why did the alcoholic drink? ? ?

Because he could.

Remember the paradox, surrender the old life

so that we can be reborn with a new life

that is a real freedom.

Today, work the Steps and give your will and your life

over to a Higher Power of your understanding.

Recovery is to do the will of a loving Higher Power.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Dilemma Of No Faith

.

“Perhaps more often

than we think,

we make no contact

at depth with alcoholics

who are suffering

the dilemma of no faith.”

.

~ As Bill Sees It    p 146

You can tell a drunk, but you can’t tell him much.

Remember, when you first entered the rooms of A.A.

how foggy your thinking was,

how nearly impossible it was to listen.

Be patient with the newcomer, be the quiet example,

don’t preach, just make the best suggestion,

one day at a time just keep coming back.

Recovery is to help the alcoholic who has no faith.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
