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.

Do Or Die

.

“We have succeeded

in confronting many

a problem drinker

with that awful

alternative.

‘This we A.A.’s do,

or we die.'”

.

As Bill Sees It   p 322

.

.

For some, a shocking message

may be what was required to bring them

to the realization that drinking poison

was surely going to kill them, eventually,

if not sooner.

As the A. A. message is given in more detail

a better understanding of the disease and its

consequences has proved to the alcoholic that

to drink is to die.

Recovery is to work a program or die.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
