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.

They Only Thought

.

“They took inventory

all right, but hung on

to some of the worst

items in stock.

They only thought

they had lost their

egoism and fear;

they only thought they had humbled themselves.”

.

Big Book,   p. 73

.

Thinking is the bane of the active alcoholic

and it is also the possible destroyer of the drunk

who is not totally honest when working the steps of A.A..

When you think that you are humble, you’re not.

One of the better lessons given by many sponsors

is that if it has a name, someone has done it before you

and the guilt and shame will go away

when you continue to work the steps

and when you honestly do your inventory.

Honesty is the first spiritual principal.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
