Daily Recovery Quotes – May 1

 May 1

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

We doctors have realized for a long time that some form of moral psychology was of urgent importance to alcoholics, but it’s application presented difficulties beyond our conception. What with our ultra-modern standards, our scientific approach to everything, we are perhaps not well equipped to apply the powers of good that lie outside our synthetic knowledge. – Pg. xxvii – 4th. Edition – The Doctor’s Opinion

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

‘For a time we are living inside a scream where there seems to be no exit, only echoes. The small cares that seemed so important yesterday seem like nothing, and our daily concerns become petty and irrelevant. When we finally reclaim ourselves, as we ultimately do, we are changed.’– Kent Nerburn, Simple Truths

I am swept into a reality where I see what is truly important, my recovery, and I carry that knowledge back to my daily life.

Opening to the New

Today I will be open to what life offers to me. The world comes to greet me like an old friend each morning. My daily habits comfort and ground me. The thought of moving into my day pleases me. Life unfolds one second at a time and today I will be present to witness it. How much of my life do I let pass by unnoticed? How many of my feelings go unfelt? Today I will recognize that my time on Earth is limited. I choose to value my life a day at a time and embrace it while I have it.

I am open to life

– Tian Dayton PhD

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

They say that young people don’t get sober, they get caught. Getting caught is a great way to find recovery. We don’t care how you get here, whether it is your parents that force you, a school counselor, the courts, or a guilty conscious–you’re here. So decide not to get recaught, but to recover instead.

If I’m young, I am respectful of the old farts. If I’m an old fart I don’t recite platitudes to the young.

If you are in the wrong place, the right place is empty.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

Today I am open to making small changes in my life that lead me, a step at a time, on my spiritual path to recovery. I have faith in the guidance that I am receiving. I trust that I will know intuitively when the time is right for those changes.
