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.

“We have elsewhere remarked

how much better life is

when lived on a spiritual plane.

If God can solve the age-old

riddle of alcoholism,

He can solve your problems too.”

.

BB,   p. 116

.

The most awesome thing about the twelve step program

is that it not only helps the alcoholic stop drinking

it also helps him develop a new manner of living

which is happy, joyous and free

from guilt, shame and remorse.

God and/or a Higher Power of your understanding

will gladly take your problems,

help you put them into a proper perspective

and gladly give you the strength and courage

to get through whatever you think the problem may be.

Faith, you were put into this world to make things

happier, brighter and better,

because you cared.

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.
