Daily Recovery Quotes – April 2

April 2

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Cling to the thought that in God’s hands, the dark past is the greatest possession you have – the key to life and happiness for others. With it you can avert death and misery for them. – Pg. 124 – The Family Afterward


Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Compulsion is a word you will hear a lot now that you have made the decision to begin recovery. You may often feel compelled to drink or use drugs again even when you don’t want to. Compulsion is a symptom of our disease and we use all the new tools of our program to counteract compulsions.

Please help me understand that compulsion is a symptom of my disease and as such need not be acted upon. I offer my compulsive behavior to God, as I understand God.


I can lose my blessings. If I don’t appreciate them, they can disappear. If I feel overly entitled, if I take what is mine for granted, if I behave as if it is simply owed me and I don’t need to notice or appreciate them, I am literally telling them to shrink. There is a wisdom, even a divine sort of self centerdness to gratitude, because what I focus on with appreciation has a way of expanding in my life. If I erase my blessings, I don’t feed them with the grace of gratitude. If I give thanks for them, I show the creative force that brings forth all good things, that I am awake enough to appreciate what has been so generously given.

I know enough to say thank you

– Tian Dayton PhD


Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

When things go wrong, they are not particularly anyone’s fault. You can’t expect every meeting to be perfect and your sponsor to have every answer. You know you can’t control or fix everything that goes wrong and neither can ‘they.’

When things go wrong, I don’t let them get too far.


“Walk Softly and Carry a Big Book” – Book

To the mind that is still, the world surrenders.


Time for Joy – Book – Quote

I am open to positive changes in my life today.


Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

This deal is as simple as A.B.C. – Accept, Begin and Continue. It doesn’t take a lawyer or some intellectual gorilla to decipher that. And you can do it downtown or uptown or anywhere else. It doesn’t make any difference. And if you’ll hold on to the God of your understanding, the truth about yourself – namely that you cannot take one drink – and hold on to your AA friends, you’ll hold on to total abstinence. And that’s the name of this game. – John C.
