AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Another principle we observe carefully is that we do not relate intimate experiences of another person unless we are sure he would approve. We find it better, when possible, to stick to our own stories. – Pg. 125 – The Family Afterward

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Frequently, in our first hours and days of giving up using mind-affecting chemicals, our tricky thoughts begin to question, ‘Are we really so bad off that we have to stop using right now?’ We will want to say, ‘Well, no. We’re not that bad off.’ But how bad do we have to get? Dead?

May I not play any head games with myself for this one hour. This hour I am not going to use.

The Creative Power of My Thoughts

Today, I recognize that I tend to produce in my life what I feel is true for myself. Thoughts have a creative power of their own. If I look closely, I can see my thoughts come to life. I create the possibility of what I would like by first experiencing it in my mind. I will visualize what I would like to have in my life in my mind’s eye. I will accept what I see in my inner eye as being available for me, and I will fully participate in my vision as if it were already mine. I will be specific about what I see in my mind’s creative eye and I will accept my inner vision as fully possible. I will see it, sense, taste it and see it as already happening. What I believe can be true for me, can be true for me. I block things form happening with my own doubt and disbelief. Today, I will imagine that I can live the life I am able to hold as a steady vision. If I can see it, I can move toward it, I can accept it, I can crate it.

All good things are possible for me

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

You must learn to pick up a program, not just set down a drink! They call this foot work. Your Higher Power wants to make a deal with you. You do the foot work and He’ll take care of the results.

If I have one hand in the fellowship and one hand in God’s, I can’t pick up today.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

I sat on the steps of that liquor store, with my broken jaw, raccoon eyes, unwashed, uncombed hair. And I sat there waiting for.. I don’t know what. And this VW pulls up, and these beautiful Californian AA’s; bright smiles, bright eyes – I immediately hated them – got out and walked toward me, like I was a piece of gold, like I was an emerald sitting there on that sidewalk. – Sharon B.
