Daily Recovery Quotes – April 26

April 26

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Suppose we fall short of the chosen ideal and stumble? Does this mean we are going to get drunk? Some people tell us so. But this is only a half-truth. It depends on us and on our motives. If we are sorry for what we have done, and have the honest desire to let God take us to better things, we believe we will be forgiven and will have learned our lesson. If we are not sorry, and our conduct continues to harm others, we are quite sure to drink. We are not theorizing. These are facts out of our experience. – Pg. 70 – How It Works

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

You may at times feel particularly antsy or confused. Like now. This is a normal reaction of withdrawing our bodies from chemicals and changing our past behavior. When this happens, we call another person, write down our feelings, pray about it, or do some physical activity.

Right this minute I am alright and I will fill the rest of this hour with one of the above activities.

Seeing Perfection in What Is

I see life as it is today. I do not ask that the world conform to my idea of perfection in order to love it. I see beauty and perfection in things as they are, not as I wish them to be. I forgive life for being imperfect. I forgive people for being imperfect. I forgive myself for being imperfect.I let life, people and me be what we are.

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

Having a God of our own under-standing does not mean we have to withhold saying ‘God’ around non-believers. People who try to get the word ‘God’ out of the Twelve Steps in order not to offend others, are missing the point. The point is, no one has to say ‘God’ in order to recover-it does not mean others can’t call their Higher Power ‘God.’

God is the answer. Now what is my problem?

Today you are leading a life. When you were drinking, you were a life being led.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

It takes a lot of courage to stay sober. And if you don’t have it, get it from the person sitting next to you, so you can recover for one more day. – Patti O.
