Because We ‘Must’


.

“When we chose

because we “must”

this was not a

free choice either.

But it got s started

in the right direction.”


~ As Bill Sees It    p 124

.

As Bill explained it , when we first came into A.A.

we  had no choice, alcohol did all of our choosing for us.

In the beginning we were introduced to the Steps,

and though we were told that they were only suggestions,

there were more than a few “must” in the equation.

By making a better choice we were beginning our journey

towards a new freedom and a new happiness.

Recovery is learning to make better choices.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Sacrifice Means Survival

.

“Just as sacrifice
means survival for
the individual alcoholic,
so does sacrifice mean
unity and survival for
the group and for A.A.’s
entire Fellowship.”

.

As Bill Sees It    p 220

.

No drinking, no thinking, go to meetings,

help another alcoholic.

Not too much to sacrifice when you know that the effort,

the price to pay, will be rewarded with a sobriety

filled with peace and serenity.

Remember, you can’t give what you don’t have.

Recovery is being willing to sacrifice.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
