Daily Recovery Quotes – February 13

February 13

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

This is the how and why of it. First of all, we had to quit playing God. It didn’t work. – Pg. 62 – How It Works


Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Life is not fair. You see it in the headlines; you see it in people racked with chronic pain; you see it in senseless street violence and children starving in third world countries. It will be a challenge for you in the coming weeks to understand it is not an unfair thing that has just happened, addiction and then recovery, but the greatest fight you shall ever receive.

Creator, I do not know why good people suffer addiction. For if it is the very act of not understanding and still trusting in the good of the universe, that comprises the very essence of faith.

Silver Linings

I search for silver linings, for the deeper meaning of events in my life. I will look for the lesson. When life offers up its inevitable challenges, I will try to understand what I am meant to see that I am not seeing, what I am meant to hear that I am not hearing. There is always a silver lining if I look for it. Even if I don’t see it readily, I trust that it is there and that it will reveal itself to me over time. Life isn’t simple. One of the ways that I can have a better experience is to see what is positive, about a given situation, to look for the silver lining. I can grow in joy and in pain. It doesn’t need to be one or the other because pain can transform into joy. It can be the fire that clears the the field for new and tender growth.

There is always a silver lining

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

As a general rule, questions that ask ‘why’ go in the wrong direction, seeking explanations that blame and shame. Questions that begin with ‘How’ and ‘What’ as in ‘How do I start my Fourth?’ and ‘What can I learn from this?’ lead to solutions, where the light bulb goes on in your head.

I ask questions that lead to exclamations not explanations.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

Alcohol is a great remover. It removes stains, inhibitions, worries, jobs, families, freedom, choices, dignity, livers,
