Painfully Slow


.

“Bob’s spiritual release

did not come easily.

It was to be painfully slow.

It always entailed the

hardest kind of work and

the sharpest vigilance.”

.

As Bill Sees It    p 35

.

The lucky experience the burning bush,

the majority travel a long, treacherous

and sometimes bumpy path

to achieve their spiritual release.

Today, don’t think. don’t drink, go to meetings

and above all, do not leave

until the miracle happens.

Recovery can be painfully slow.

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.
