AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Unmindful of his welfare, I thought only of recapturing the spirit of other days. There was that time we had chartered an airplane to complete a jag! His coming was an oasis in this dreary desert of futility. The very thing — an oasis! Drinkers are like that. – Pg. 9 – Bill’s Story

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Nothing comes easy for us right now. A lot of energy goes into just staying put and accepting this new way of life. We say that when the going gets tough, we hang tough! We know that it will pass, we make that promise to you. But it will be in God’s time, not yours.

Guide my faith, in this program and in You, my Spiritual Source.

Staying with Myself

Today, I see that taking care of myself begins inside of me. It is not just a function of what I do, but the attitude with which I move through my day. Having my own life is about checking in with myself to see how I’m doing. It’s wearing a sweater if I’m cold and taking a break if I’m tired. It’s making sure that I’m having enough fun in my life, paying attention to what I enjoy doing, doing more of that and finding ways of reducing what doesn’t feel good. Having a life that is well suited to me is letting myself have my own unique likes and dislikes, and acting on them in constructive ways. It is not organizing my life so that it is good enough for everyone else, forgetting that it needs to be good enough for me as well. I occupy the center of my own life.

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

Whatever spiritual values you adopt are unique to you. You may adopt a strong religious stance or a more intimate spiritual philosophy from within. In any case, the spiritual path you seek is up to you and not those around you. Be comfortable with your spiritual choices and don’t try to please others.

The more I have on the inside, the less I need on the outside.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

I can be centered and at peace inside when the world is going my way, as well as when things are happening that are not my choice. I am learning to focus on this newly found inner peace, especially at times of confusion and stress.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

It’s clean and sober across the board. I don’t get to take chips in AA for 60. or 90 days or a year, if I’m smoking pot or doing a little social heroin between meetings. Even if pot wasn’t my drug of choice. – – Earl H.
