Act Your Age

.

“Those adolescent urges

that so many of us have

for complete approval,

utter security, and

perfect romance –

urges quite appropriate

to the age seventeen –

prove to be an impossible

way of life at forty-seven or fifty-seven.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 330

At 49 I woke up and the kind folks from A.A.

were only too glad to show me that I was emotionally

only seventeen, still chasing skirts and keg parties.

Divorced twice and with a score of bad relationships

strewn out along the way, my alcoholic, self centered, selfish,

egomaniac who suffered with an inferiority complex

had no idea how to love, how to develop a healthy relationship.

The current relationship is going on twenty six years,

thanks to a Higher Power and the program of A.A.

Recovery is to start growing emotionally and spiritually.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

As I Am

.

“Reassured that

I am no longer

always wrong,

I learn to accept myself

as I am, with a new sense

of sobriety and serenity.”

.

Daily Reflections,     p. 303

The grandiose egomaniac that suffers

with an inferiority complex doesn’t care

if he is right or wrong, he just wants to be left alone

so he can drink in peace.

Besides not drinking, one of the goals of sobriety

is to find ones self-esteem and to become a

productive member of society.

The happy recovering drunk will be glad to tell you

that once he accepted himself as being the person

his Higher Power wanted him to be

a new sense of peace of mind and serenity was his.

Today, I’m O.K., your O.K., and in sobriety

we can enjoy a life that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
