Be Inspired

.

“When we see how many

of our fellow A.A.’s

have used the Steps

to transcend great

pain and adversity,

we shall be inspired

to try these life-giving

principles for ourselves.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 238

My old ways never worked,

I was a lost soul with no reason to live,

no purpose in life.

The way that worked

was to learn to listen to those who

had found a way to a life that I wanted.

Following their suggestions, working the steps

has led me to a life that was beyond my wildest dreams.

Recovery is following the suggestions and using the Steps.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Always Threatening

.

“And, even though

we are now sober,

the old patterns

of behavior are

to a degree still

with us, always

threatening to explode

on any good excuse.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 56

.

One day at a time I ask the God of my understanding

to protect me from the old stinking thinking.

Every disease is subject to relapse and only by maintaining

a sound spiritual foundation

am I able to keep the disease in remission.

The disease is there, always, doing push ups, just waiting

for me to get to close to the slippery slope.

Today, don’t think, don’t drink, go to a meeting

and rely on your Higher Power to protect you

from your old behaviors.

Recovery is to defend against old patterns of thinking.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
