Daily Recovery Quotes – June 23

June 23

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

I will never know all the people I hurt, all the friends I abused, the humiliation of my family, the worry of my business associates, or how far reaching it was. I continue to be surprised by the people I meet who say,’You haven’t had a drink for a long time, have you?’ The surprise to me is the fact that I didn’t know that they knew my drinking had gotten out of control. That is where we are really fooled. We think we can drink to excess without anyone’s knowing it. Everyone knows it. The only one we are fooling is ourselves. We rationalize and excuse our conduct beyond reason. – Pg. 351 – 4th. Edition – Personal Stories – It Might Have Been Worse

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

The world is not consistent, you are not consistent, and those around you will not always be consistent. We don’t have to be. We only have to remember not to use mind-affecting chemicals right now and our world will improve.

When inconsistency scares or annoys me, let me understand that to remain always constant would be like a plastic plant, never to grow and change!

Higher Power Within Me

Today, I recognize that a Higher Power lives and breathes inside me, through me, as me. I used to think that God was the chairperson of somebody else’s board, and I spent my time in search of another person’s version of a Higher Power. But really, there is no searching – it is more like an acceptance. That is the well-kept secret: that God lives, not in the heavens or inside special buildings, but within my very self. My direct access to myself is my direct access to my Higher Power, and my estrangement from myself is my estrangement from my Higher Power. We are co-creators, hand-in-glove, a team. Today, I see allowing God into my life as an act of surrender, acceptance and love.I love my Higher Power and my Higher Power loves me – we are one.

There may be some people who want you to be perfect. But thanks to our fellowship, to God, and the Twelve Steps, you don’t have to be one of them!

I claim progress, not perfection.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

Today I’m learning to release my stress and anxiety in positive and healthy ways. My body is becoming free from all negative experiences. My past no longer lives in my body.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

Weird things they tell you; ‘How do you do this?’
‘Hold on.’
‘How do you surrender?’
‘Just let go.’ – Bea.
