Any Which Way

.

“We can be grateful for

every agency or method

that tries to solve the

problem of alcoholism –

whether of medicine,

religion, education,

or research.”

.

As Bill Sees It,  p 147

.

.

There is a God today, and it is not you or me.

The final judge of a persons sobriety

will be a loving Higher Power

who knows if you are lying or

if you my be just stretching the truth a little bit.

We have not yet been cloned, we are unique individuals

and no matter how an alcoholic stops drinking,

God bless them, and may  they do no harm.

Recovery is great no matter which way you do it.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Face It And Learn

.

“When pain comes,

we are expected to

learn from it willingly,

and help others to learn.

When happiness comes,

we accept it as a gift,

and thank God for it.”

.

~ As Bill Sees It, p. 306

.

.

Physical pain; take two aspirin and call me in the morning.

Emotional pain; pray, meditate, talk to y0ur sponsor

and when you discover the root cause of the pain,

give it to your Higher Power.

Happiness is easy, smile, God knows that your smile

is a sign of gratitude and thankfulness

for having received the gift of sobriety.

Recovery is to learn from the pain and accept happiness as a gift.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Don’t Waste Your Time

.

“When you discover a prospect

for Alcoholics Anonymous,

find out all you can about him.

If he does not want to stop drinking,

don’t waste time trying

to persuade him.”

.

~  BB     p. 90

.

.

Recovery is for those who want it.

The twelfth step says that to keep your sobriety

you must share it with others, however,

the wisdom of those who have gone before us tells

us that we should not waste our time with a drunk

who does not want to stop drinking.

Today, help yourself, help only those

who want to seek sobriety themselves.

Recovery is helping others, but don’t waste your time.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Instincts

.

” He did not design man

to destroy himself

by alcohol,

but He did give man

instincts to help

him stay alive.”

12 & 12, p. 35

.

.

The disease of Alcoholism wants me to isolate,

be  alone, to push away anyone who loves me

and to kill myself.

This negative drive is opposite of normal human instincts

and I must be grateful to Alcoholics Anonymous

and their Big Book which has shown me

how sick I really am.

Today, be spiritual, work a program of recovery

that will prevent your disease from warping your instincts.

Recovery is understand one’s natural instincts.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Our Inventory

.

“We finally saw

that the inventory

should be ours,

not the other man’s.

So we admitted our wrongs honestly

and became willing to set

these matters straight.”

.

~ AS BILL SEES IT, p. 222

.

.

It was always somebody else’s fault.

If they would have, should have, could have

only done this or that, everything would not have

had such negative consequences.

What part did I have to play in this outcome

became the fundamental question.

Yes, I may have been influenced by my disease of alcoholism

however, that could not be an excuse.

To clear the wreckage of the past, to clear head and heart

of the guilt and shame, I had to be honest and confess

to God and another human being the exact nature of my wrongs.

Recovery is initiated by an honest self-inventory.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Essence Of Growth

.

‘The essence of all growth

is a willingness to make

a change for the better

and then an unremitting willingness

to shoulder whatever responsibility

this entails.”

.

~ AS BILL SEES IT, p. 115

.

Recovery cannot be obtained by osmosis,

sitting in the chair at a meeting for ninety days

will only keep you sober for ninety days.

To obtain sobriety requires that you must be willing

to do the work and then you must take the action,

do the work.

Today, be willing, do something, use the spiritual

tools freely given by those who have gone before you

and have faith that the results of your efforts will be

serenity and peace of mind.

Recovery is taking the actions suggested.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Judge Of Your Worth,

.

“You alone are

the judge of your worth,

and your goal is

to discover infinite

worth in yourself,

no matter what

anyone else thinks.”

.

~ Deepak Chopra

.

It never is between you and them,

it is, has been and always will be

just between you and your Higher Power.

The Great Creator made you perfectly capable

of doing His will and the choice to do so is yours.

Today, pray, meditate;

seek the Spirit that is within you

and just do the next right thing,

love this world as being exactly

the way God wants it to be.

Recovery is to discover the infinite worth in yourself.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
