A new attitude toward liquor?

Posted by 28 September, 2016 (0) Comment

“We will seldom be interested in liquor. If tempted, we recoil from it as from a hot flame. We react sanely and normally, and we will find that this has happened automatically. We will see that our new attitude toward liquor has been given us without any thought or effort on our part. It just comes!”
Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition Into Action, pg. 84

No Cop-outs

Posted by 27 September, 2016 (0) Comment

We have to keep our sobriety independent of everything else, not entangled with any people, and not hedged in by any cop-outs or conditions. . . Independent, unaffiliated with anything else, our sobriety can grow strong enough to enable us to cope with anything—and everybody. And, as you’ll see, we start liking that feeling, too.
– Living Sober, p. 64

Thought to Ponder . . . Keep your sobriety first to make it last.

The essentials of recovery.

Posted by 27 September, 2016 (0) Comment

Continuing the consideration of the term “spiritual experience”: “What often takes place in a few months could seldom have been accomplished by years of self-discipline. With few exceptions, our members find that they have tapped an unsuspected inner resource which they presently identify with their own conception of a Power greater than themselves. Most of us think this awareness of a Power greater than ourselves the essence of spiritual experience. Some of us call it God-consciousness. In any case, willingness, honesty, and open-mindedness are the essentials of recovery,” Have I tapped that inner resource that can change my life?
