Daily Recovery Quotes – August 22

August 22

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

We reviewed our fears thoroughly. We put them on paper, even though we had no resentment in connection with them. We asked ourselves why we had them. Wasn’t it because self-reliance failed us? Self-reliance was good as far as it went, but it didn’t go far enough. Some of us once had great self-confidence, but it didn’t fully solve the fear problem, or any other. When it made us cocky, it was worse. – Pg. 68 – How It Works


Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

If someone on the program talks rather harshly to you, it is because they too have been where you are. They will not pity you because pity leads to self-pity which leads to mind-affecting chemicals. Sometimes reality is harsh, and we won’t hide that from you in our program.

When another in the program is harsh with me, help me to see the love behind the harshness, the reality behind my pain.

Shifting Helplessness to Powerlessness

Today I will allow my feelings of helplessness that I cannot help to shift to a powerlessness that I choose. Powerlessness leaves room for spiritual awakening. Helplessness is part of trauma. When I allow myself to shift into powerlessness, I make a profound move inward and upward. The helplessness that I carry from the disease, that feeling that nothing I can do will make a difference, transforms into a spiritual recognition and I can let go and let God in. I can stop being Cysifus pushing the same rock up the same mountain. I can step out from under the disease.

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

The birth of resentment is blame. Often from the center of your bad feelings you seek someone to blame and yet if you ‘find’ this someone, it can only serve to increase your misery. Blame increases misery because it gives you something to focus on again and again. ‘Resentment’ is from Latin, meaning to ‘feel again.’

By eliminating blame, I don’t allow ‘them’ to live rent free in my head.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

He said ‘If you’ll repeat sober what you said last night, I’ll leave you and never bother you again. I said I’d do that on one condition: That he tell me what I said last night. – Anon.
