Suggestions

.

“There are few absolutes

in the Twelve Steps.

Most Steps are open to

interpretation, based

on the experience and

outlook of the individual”.

.

As Bill See It    p 191

.

There are 40 must in the first 164 pages of the

big book of Alcoholics Anonymous, however,

they are limited to actions that must be taken

if one is to change their alcoholic behaviors.

How you take those actions are the suggestions that

are open to interpretation.

Easy does it, but just do it, you must.

Recovery is being willing to take suggestions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Ground Glass

.

“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.
