Sacrifice Means Survival

.

“Just as sacrifice
means survival for
the individual alcoholic,
so does sacrifice mean
unity and survival for
the group and for A.A.’s
entire Fellowship.”

.

As Bill Sees It    p 220

.

No drinking, no thinking, go to meetings,

help another alcoholic.

Not too much to sacrifice when you know that the effort,

the price to pay, will be rewarded with a sobriety

filled with peace and serenity.

Remember, you can’t give what you don’t have.

Recovery is being willing to sacrifice.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Spot-check Inventory

.

“A spot-check inventory

in the midst of

disturbances

can be of very great

help in quieting

stormy emotions.”

.

As Bill Sees It     p 132

.

Twenty-four/seven, anytime you hear the resident rodent

scampering through the head is as good as time as any

to do a spot inventory.

Why am I thinking or acting this way ? ? ?

Why does the person or thing bother me ? ? ?

Where is my serenity and peace of mind ? ? ?

Today, a spot prayer, a little meditation

and a phone call to your sponsor or a friend

will usually find the answers for you and put you

back on beam. The pathway to happiness.

Recovery is learning how to quiet stormy emotions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
