The Attempt to Improve

.

“In a consistent

attempt to improve

my conscious contact

with a Higher Power,

I am subtly reminded of

my unhealthy past,

with its patterns of

grandiose thinking and false feelings of omnipotence.”

.

Daily Reflections,  p. 327

“We will not regret the past

nor wish to shut the door on it,”

I have a disease that constantly wants to tell me

that I am cured, that I no longer have the obsession

and compulsion to drink,

that maybe I could do it right this time around.

This is why we go to meetings, to be reminded that

it does not get any better,

that the disease is cunning, baffling and powerful.

Today, leave your ego at the meeting door

and make the attempt to improve a conscious contact

with your Higher Power.

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.

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.

Dysfunction

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A doctor said to us,

” Years of living with

an alcoholic is almost

sure to make any wife

or child neurotic.

The entire family is,

to some extent, ill.”

My family put the FUN in “dys FUN ction.”

My disease is selfish, self-centered, arrogant,

grandiose and all about me. (the victim)

My recovery is about all of those that I hurt while

I was under the influence of the disease.

Working the AA Steps with a sponsor was

the beginning of a life that was to clear the

wreckage of the past and to live a life

that tried to avoid chaos.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
