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.

Ego, Fear and Pride

.

“The immediate admission of

wrong thoughts or actions is a

tough task for most human beings,

but for recovering alcoholics

like me it is difficult because

of my propensity toward

ego, fear and pride.”

.

Daily Reflections,  p. 295

.

One of the more dominate characteristics

of the alcoholic is ‘nothing in moderation.’

The egomaniac who suffers with an inferiority complex

is off of every wall, below the gutter,

higher than the pink cloud but rarely

anywhere close to reality.

Sobriety, a Higher Power

and the Twelve Step program can

restore the alcoholic to sane thinking.

Today, thank God for a second chance,

go to a meeting and remember to leave your

ego, fear and pride at the meeting room door.

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.
