Building A New Life

Posted by 18 January, 2017 (0) Comment

The new life can’t be built in a day. We have to take the program slowly, a little at a time. Our subconscious minds have to be reeducated. We have to learn to think differently. We have to get used to sober thinking instead of alcoholic thinking. Anyone who tries it knows that the old alcoholic thinking is apt to come back on us when we least expect it. Building a new life is a slow process, but it can be done if we really follow the A.A. program. Am I building a new life on the foundation of sobriety?

Grapevine Quote of the Day ~ Jan 17

Posted by 17 January, 2017 (0) Comment

“When things go well, we must never fall into the error of believing that no great ill can befall us. Nor should we accuse ourselves of ‘negative thinking’ when we insist on facing the destructive forces in and around us, both realistically and effectively. Vigilance will always be the price of survival.”

Happy, joyous, and free.

“Everybody knows that those in bad health, and those who seldom play, do not laugh much. So let each family play together or separately as much as their circumstances warrant. We are sure God wants us to be happy, joyous, and free.”
Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition > The Family Afterward, pg. 132

Convincing Evidence

Posted by 17 January, 2017 (0) Comment

The most convincing evidence I have today that I’m an alcoholic is not how much or how long I drank, nor how drunk I got; the most convincing evidence I have is that Alcoholics Anonymous is working for me.
– Thank You For Sharing, p. 181

Thought to Ponder . . . I would rather go through life sober, believing I am an alcoholic, than go through life drunk, trying to convince myself that I am not.
