AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

It may seem incredible that these men are to become happy, respected, and useful once more. How can they rise out of such misery, bad repute and hopelessness? The practical answer is that since these things have happened among us, they can happen with you. Should you wish them above all else, and be willing to make use of our experience, we are sure they will come. – Pg. 153 – A Vision For You

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

It is important to stay away from ‘trigger’ people and places. These old influences can ‘trigger’ an overwhelming desire to use: bars, pot smoking, using friends, drug parties, cocktail parties, dealers, angry relatives, liquor stores, concerts, etc. We each need to determine our personal ‘triggers’ and stay away from them.

Divine Intelligence helps me honestly identify and stay away from my ‘triggers.’

The Three C’s

I didn’t cause it, I can’t control it and I can’t cure it. I didn’t cause it, I can’t control it and I can’t cure it. I didn’t cause it, I can’t control it and I can’t cure it. I need to repeat and repeat this to myself in order to deal with my powerful disease of codependency that actually makes me feel that I did cause this disease, I can control it and I can cure it. When I get into this trap I lose myself all over again. I get into fights that cannot be won, I alienate others, I give away my power and I wind up feeling terrible about myself. Today I will not try to do the impossible. I will remember that my only job is to get better myself.

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

In light of your recovery, when dealing with family and friends, you may have to make some unpopular decisions and enforce them. Be open to moving toward the middle of issues that don’t com-promise your principles and going to any length for those that do.

My recovery is Twelve Steps past any lengths.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

Today I am open to be touched by love, by joy, by nature.

Today I put aside all the happiness that I seek so that I can be free to experience the joy of this very moment . . . right now.
