Trust Me

.

But does trust

require that we

be blind to other

people’s motives

or,

indeed to our own.”

Trust me, but how far? ? ?

Remember, I was an active alcoholic that was

always practicing the art of lying, cheating and stealing.

Today, I would like to say that I am always as honest as Abe,

however, I have been know to relapse

into that old stinking thinking and I should be trusted

only as far as the next prayer and or meeting that we

say together or attend together.

Repeat after me,

“Trust is earned, one sober step at a time.”

Recovery is  learning how to trust.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

A Willingness To Give

.
“The unity, the effectiveness,

and even the survival of A.A.

will always depend upon

our
continued willingness to

give
up some of our personal

ambitions and desires

for the common safety and welfare.”

.

~  As Bill Sees It    p  220

.

As a drunk it was always about me,

in recovery it becomes all about we.

Compromise, balance, and agreement, words that are

foreign to the active alcoholic are words to those in recovery

that provide serenity and peace of mind.

To be restored to sane thinking is learning how

to use these words honestly in all of our affairs.

Recovery is to give up some of our personal ambitions and desires.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
