We Obey

.

.

“The A. A. traditions

are neither rules,

regulations nor laws.

We obey them willingly

because we ought to

and because we want to.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 319

The Twelve Steps are to keep the alcoholic from killing himself.

The Twelve Traditions are to keep the alcoholics from killing each other.

More suggestions.

For over eighty years A.A. has helped millions of alcoholics achieve sobriety

and if we continue to follow these few simple suggestions, hopefully,

there will be many more millions to come.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Recovery is being willing to obey a few simple suggestions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Because We ‘Must’


.

“When we chose

because we “must”

this was not a

free choice either.

But it got s started

in the right direction.”


~ As Bill Sees It    p 124

.

As Bill explained it , when we first came into A.A.

we  had no choice, alcohol did all of our choosing for us.

In the beginning we were introduced to the Steps,

and though we were told that they were only suggestions,

there were more than a few “must” in the equation.

By making a better choice we were beginning our journey

towards a new freedom and a new happiness.

Recovery is learning to make better choices.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
