“The moral inventory . . .
has the effect of taking
the ground glass out
of us, the emotional
substance that still
cuts and inhibits.”
As Bill Sees It p. 140
The cut is the guilt, the shame, the remorse,
those feelings the drunk should have, but doesn’t,
at least not until he tries to get sober.
Love the A.A. saying:
the good news and the bad news of getting sober:
first the good news, you get your feelings back,
now for the bad news, you get your feelings back.
Remember: pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
Today, work the steps thoroughly
and learn to move on with living.
Recovery is removing the emotional substance
that still cuts and inhibits.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
