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.

Suggestions

.

“There are few absolutes

in the Twelve Steps.

Most Steps are open to

interpretation, based

on the experience and

outlook of the individual”.

.

As Bill See It    p 191

.

There are 40 must in the first 164 pages of the

big book of Alcoholics Anonymous, however,

they are limited to actions that must be taken

if one is to change their alcoholic behaviors.

How you take those actions are the suggestions that

are open to interpretation.

Easy does it, but just do it, you must.

Recovery is being willing to take suggestions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.
