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.

About This Slip Business

.

“About this slip business –

– I would not be

too discouraged.

I think you are suffering

a great deal from

a needless guilt.”

.

.

As Bill Sees It     p 11

.

Some walk into the rooms

and never have to go out again.

Others follow a different and usually a harder path

that is filled with a, some, or many slippery slopes.

Don’t be discouraged if your road is harder than others,

just keep coming back.

The miracles happen only when you are in the rooms.

Recovery is avoiding needless guilt.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
