Look In The Mirror

.

“This brave philosophy,

wherein each man played God,

sounded good in the speaking,

but it still had to meet

the acid test: How well did

it actually work?

One good look in the mirror

was answer enough.”

.

As Bill Sees It     p 225

Playing God took me to my bottom.

I could not see how alcohol was lying to me,

telling me I was God, all the while trying to kill me.

The universe abhors suicide.

Faith, trusting in my Higher Power ,

which I choose to call God,

and working the steps of A.A. has allowed me

to find a pathway to serenity, peace of mind and a

life that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is honestly admitting that we are not God.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

The Alternative

“To be doomed to

an alcoholic death

or to live on a

spiritual basis

are not always easy

alternatives to face.”

BB p 44

For the sane person the choice between going

to Heaven or going to Hell is a no brainer.

For the alcoholic not to drink himself to death

is not a choice but a compulsion caused by a fatal disease.

The thought of not drinking, of living a sane and serene life

is but the dream of his loved ones.

To live (spiritually) or not to live (suicide by drink)

are the daily alternatives that the alcoholic must face.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
