AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
We have no monopoly on God; we merely have an approach that worked with us. – Pg. 95 – Working With Others
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
One hour at a time leads to one day at a time in our recovery program. Each hour is one of 24 building blocks of each day of our sobriety and clean time. My current building block is to be kind and considerate for this hour.
Help me center my emotions and be kind and considerate for this hour.
Empowering My Own Day
There are no victims, only volunteers. If there is something I don’t like in the way things are going for me, I will see what I can change. I can change the subject if someone goes on and on about things that I don’t want to talk about. I can change my routines or change the way I get to where I am going, I can set boundaries with my time if I am feeling over scheduled. My time and what I do with it is precious to me, it is all I have to call my very own. I won’t throw it away and then blame someone else gobbling it up. I have a right to protect the quiet and enjoyment of my day, to do more of those things that give me pleasure and fewer of those things that run me down. If I am living up to my responsibilities, that is enough.
I won’t throw my time away with both hands.

They say both, ‘My best thinking got me drunk’ and ‘Think a drink through.’ Which is it? Are our thoughts friend or foe? Both, and the difference between ‘stink’n think’n’ and ‘straight thinking’ is simply self-honesty. We find a good place to start in Step Four.
I have to think everything I believe, but I don’t have to believe everything I think.

If you are right, you don’t need to be angry; if you are wrong, you can’t afford to be angry.

Today I give myself permission to take the quiet time I need to meditate and to improve my conscious contact with God.
