AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
Live and let live is the rule. If you both show a willingness to remedy your own defects, there will be little need to criticize each other. – Pg. 118 – To Wives

The reality of our illness is simple; we have it! Once we see that we have the disease of chemical dependency, then we can admit that we are addicted to whatever, and then we can accept the help we are offered.
I accept my humanness and accept my non-perfection in order to accept the help of those in recovery.
I will live in the present grateful to be alive and in this radiant world for one more day. Living in the present brings its own perspective. What is not worth getting preoccupied about falls away while what is truly meaningful and important rises up and into focus. I am here to appreciate and live life, to grow, to share my heart and soul with those around me. If I miss today, I will not get it back. If I allow it to work its beauty inside of me, it will fertilize tomorrow’s garden. Today is what I know I have. All of life is here, woven into the atoms of the world that surrounds me. If I am with this day, I am with all of life.
I am part of an alive universe.

We have these two forces; this insatiable thirst, compulsion, hunger, yearning, call it what you will. We don’t know what we’re looking for but we’re searching. And the other force; the escape. We’re running, not knowing what from. – Eddie E.
