“What used to be the hunch
or the occasional inspiration
part of the mind.”
BB p 87
Because I spent no time indulging the obsession
or the compulsion to drink,
I had time to think clear thoughts.
Many of my first insights were thoughts of gratitude.
I was grateful that,
thanks to a Higher Power and the fellowship of AA,
a program of clean living and clear thinking
has been restored to me.
Today, I must work my program knowing that
I am still an alcoholic and that I must always
be on guard to make sure that the old stinking thinking
does not return and when it does, I have the tools to
help me do the next right thing.
Recovery is to restore a working mind.
Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
