AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
We seldom allow an alcoholic to live in our homes for long at a time. It is not good for him, and it sometimes creates serious complications in a family. – Pg. 97 – Working With Others
Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
The best decision you have ever made is to opt for the health that sobriety and clean time will give you. If the decision was someone else’s then your decision to accept it was the best one ever made. You will gain a new perspective on life and for this you need to thank yourself.
As I thank myself, I also thank any others, including a Higher Power, as I understand Him / Her, for giving me another hour without mind-affecting chemicals.
Letting My Body Speak
I will let my body have a voice today and I will listen to what it’s trying to say to me. If my body’s voice has tears in it, I will allow those tears to come out. If my body is holding anger, I will allow myself to experience that anger so that it can dissolve and my cells no longer have to hold it for me. If my body wants to shiver and shake I will let it, knowing that it just needs to release something it doesn’t want to hang onto any more.
I allow my body to let go of the emotions it is holding

Time for Joy – Book – Quote
It is exciting to know that the more I listen to the chattering that goes on in my mind, the quicker I can identify the blocks to my positive and creative energy. Today I release all negativity so that I can be fully alive in the moment.
Alkiespeak – Book – Quote
I was living on the streets, drinking. I’d sit in the meetings and listen to them talking about this ‘phenomenon of craving’, but I can’t see that it applies to me. I mean, I would drink and get drunk but it didn’t seem like a craving to me. I’d seen ‘Lost Weekend’ and ‘Days Of Wine and Roses’. I don’t claw the walls to get another drink. – But the funny thing about a craving is that you don’t realize you have it until it’s interrupted. – Bob D.
