AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
We trust infinite God rather than our finite selves. We are in the world to play the role He assigns. Just to the extent that we do as we think He would have us, and humbly rely on Him, does He enable us to match calamity with serenity. – Pg. 68 – How It Works

Our incessant analyzing could very well lead us back to drugs. Is your mind yapping at you constantly? Should I stay, should I not? Put your mind to rest by saying to yourself: No matter what my mind says, I won’t take a fix, pill, drink, or snort and I will stay in this program.
With a firm decision on my part, it doesn’t matter what my mind says, I know what my behavior will be — clean and sober.
Spirit at Work
I am waiting in pleasant anticipation for spirit to work its quiet magic in my day. There is nothing that I can think, feel or do, that cannot be made lighter and truer by inviting spirit into it. I rest in the joyous awareness that spirit is with me. That spirit has never left me. If I feel an absence of spirit today I will remember that it is not spirit that moves away from me, but I that move away from spirit. I am uplifted by the thought that I am not alone, nor ever was I. Today I need no proof that I am on a spiritual journey because the miracle of life surrounds me everywhere and this is proof enough. I am living the gift.
Life is the remedy

Pure and simple: Fear is the absence of Faith. Whether your fears are the Frantic Efforts to Appear Recovered or the F*ck Everything And Run type, one thing is guaranteed to alleviate them, the Fear Ain’t In This House type of faith.
My fear no longer owns me.

It works better if you get into the program instead of just getting around the program.
Time for Joy – Book – Quote
In quiet meditation I find emotional balance. I feel myself growing closer and closer to my Higher Power and I find love.

If you don’t believe that the AA Big Book was written with the assistance of a divine editor, ask yourself; ‘Could my home group have written it?’ In my group it takes us twenty minutes to elect a G.S.O – And that’s when we have a volunteer. – Doug D.
