AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
But the actual or potential alcoholic, with hardly and exception, will be ABSOLUTELY UNABLE TO STOP DRINKING ON THE BASIS OF SELF-KNOWLEDGE. This is a point we wish to emphasize and re-emphasize, to smash home upon our alcoholic readers as it has been revealed to us out of bitter experience. – Pg. 39 – More About Alcoholism
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
Right now you don’t have to pretend to be someone you are not. You don’t have to pretend to be strong (if you’re a man) or weak (if you’re a woman). You don’t have to pretend that you don’t want to use, if you do–share what is real. We can’t help if we don’t know the truth.
Grant me the courage to simply be who I am, say what is real in my gut, and respond genuinely to others.
I can start over each day. I can start over each hour of each day. The universe is impersonal in that sense. It’s always waiting for me to tell it what I want. Like attracts like. I tell the world what I want more of, by what I am thinking and feeling right now, right this minute. Today, every hour on the hour, I will allow myself to see something positive about my day. I’ll let myself send out an order by my pleasant thoughts and feelings for more of the same. When I catch myself heading down a negative path I’ll stop and consciously observe what is going through my mind. Life is full of chances and so is my day. I can start it over any time I want to.
I shift my life a thought at a time

‘Thoroughly have we seen a person fail who has rarely followed our path.’ This is an interesting slip of the tongue from Chapter Five of Alcoholic’s Anonymous. Yet it contains a lot of wisdom.
I cannot work the steps too soon, because I do not know how soon it may be too late.

I don’t have a drinking problem today, I have a sobriety problem. If I pick up a drink, I’ve got a whole new problem. – Barney M.
