Daily Recovery Quotes – May 18

May 18

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

It did not satisfy us to be told that we could not control our drinking just because we were maladjusted to life, that we were in full flight from reality, or were outright mental defectives. These things were true to some extent, in fact, to a considerable extent with some of us. But we are sure that our bodies were sickened as well. In our belief, any picture of the alcoholic which leaves out his physical factor is incomplete. – Pg. xxvi – 4th. Edition – The Doctor’s Opinion

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Often times we have fears that someone from the past might find us, evil is after us, or that our friends really hate us. At these times we must turn to our Higher Power, surrender our fears and our fate. In that surrender, we cease struggling, cease fear. 

The Divine helps me ask for help when I need it.


Today I give with both hands. Giving for its own sake is the spiritual way and actually releases the gift. When I givewith one hand and take with the other, I give only half of what I haveand receive only half of what might be given to me. I limit myself intwo ways. Somehow the universe responds to clear intention. When I fully release a gift, it goes to where it is supposed to go and what returns to me comes when and how it is right. 

I am able to give with both hands

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

Our recovery has less to do with our thinking and much more to do with our actions. If you don’t believe this, stop going to meetings, stop looking at where you’re wrong, stop making amends, and stop doing service work. You will soon see that no matter how good your ‘thoughts’ are, your life won’t be worth a hoot in very short order. 

My recovery works better when I utilize, not analyze.

“Walk Softly and Carry a Big Book” – Book

If something is right, it can be done. If it is wrong it can be done without.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

Today I look beyond the immediate moment of satisfaction and decide what is good for me in the larger picture of my life. Today I have faith and patience and can wait to make loving and positive choices.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

I didn’t know who I was. I would be the type of person you wanted me to be at that particular time. A few minutes later I’d be the type of person someone else wanted me to be. I had so many personalities I could have gone into group therapy on my own. – Anon.
