Suggested

.

“Here are the

steps we took,

which are suggested

as a program

of recovery:”

.

BB  p  59

You can tell a drunk,

but you can’t tell him much.

Suggested and willing are two words that

anyone who is being introduced to a new

way of living cannot much argue with.

Honesty, Open-mindedness and Willingness

are HOW it works.

The magical thing behind the Twelve Step Program

is that it does not guarantee anything but miracles

if you thoroughly follow our path.

Recovery is taking a few suggestions.

Sobriety is a blessing from a Higher Power.

Ego, Fear and Pride

.

“The immediate admission of

wrong thoughts or actions is a

tough task for most human beings,

but for recovering alcoholics

like me it is difficult because

of my propensity toward

ego, fear and pride.”

.

Daily Reflections,  p. 295

.

One of the more dominate characteristics

of the alcoholic is ‘nothing in moderation.’

The egomaniac who suffers with an inferiority complex

is off of every wall, below the gutter,

higher than the pink cloud but rarely

anywhere close to reality.

Sobriety, a Higher Power

and the Twelve Step program can

restore the alcoholic to sane thinking.

Today, thank God for a second chance,

go to a meeting and remember to leave your

ego, fear and pride at the meeting room door.

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.
