A Willingness To Give

.
“The unity, the effectiveness,

and even the survival of A.A.

will always depend upon

our
continued willingness to

give
up some of our personal

ambitions and desires

for the common safety and welfare.”

.

~  As Bill Sees It    p  220

.

As a drunk it was always about me,

in recovery it becomes all about we.

Compromise, balance, and agreement, words that are

foreign to the active alcoholic are words to those in recovery

that provide serenity and peace of mind.

To be restored to sane thinking is learning how

to use these words honestly in all of our affairs.

Recovery is to give up some of our personal ambitions and desires.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Inventory Taking

.

Inventory taking is

not always done

in red ink.

It’s a poor day indeed

when we haven’t

done something

right.”

.

As Bill Sees It    p 80

.

The negative thinking, pessimistic drunk is always

looking for the worst in things while the recovering

alcoholic must learn to see the positive side of things.

Remember, not having a drink, one day at a time

is the most positive thing that a drunk can do on any given day

and for that his daily inventory should end with a positive.

Recovery is to have gratitude for the things done right.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
