Look In The Mirror

.

“This brave philosophy,

wherein each man played God,

sounded good in the speaking,

but it still had to meet

the acid test: How well did

it actually work?

One good look in the mirror

was answer enough.”

.

As Bill Sees It     p 225

Playing God took me to my bottom.

I could not see how alcohol was lying to me,

telling me I was God, all the while trying to kill me.

The universe abhors suicide.

Faith, trusting in my Higher Power ,

which I choose to call God,

and working the steps of A.A. has allowed me

to find a pathway to serenity, peace of mind and a

life that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is honestly admitting that we are not God.

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.
