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.

To Kill Pain

.

.

“I believe that when

we were active alcoholics

we drank mostly to kill pain

of one kind or another –

physical or emotional or psychic.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 291

.

.

Whatever the pain, real or imagined,

self inflicted or caused by someone else,

A. A. has many suggestions for relieving the pain,

none of which involve drinking alcohol.

Today, if you are in pain, talk to your sponsor,

talk to your spiritual adviser, take it to a meeting

and know that this too shall pass as soon as

you let go and let God.

Recovery is to learn to resolve , not dissolve, the pain.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
