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.

A Spot-check Inventory

.

“A spot-check inventory

in the midst of

disturbances

can be of very great

help in quieting

stormy emotions.”

.

As Bill Sees It     p 132

.

Twenty-four/seven, anytime you hear the resident rodent

scampering through the head is as good as time as any

to do a spot inventory.

Why am I thinking or acting this way ? ? ?

Why does the person or thing bother me ? ? ?

Where is my serenity and peace of mind ? ? ?

Today, a spot prayer, a little meditation

and a phone call to your sponsor or a friend

will usually find the answers for you and put you

back on beam. The pathway to happiness.

Recovery is learning how to quiet stormy emotions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
