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.

The Honeymoon

.

“For most of us,

the first years of A.A.

are something like

a honeymoon.
. . .

“But when the honeymoon

has worn off, we are obliged

to take our lumps, like other people.”

.

As Bill Sees It    p  216

.

Beware of the “Pink Cloud.”

Just because you sobered up does not mean that

life will stop having its ups and downs.

Balance in your life and a realistic approach to living

are the rewards of the A. A. program that is utilized

on a daily basis.

Have faith, if God brings you to it ,

He will see you through it.

Recovery is to survive after the honeymoon is over.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
