Daily Recovery Quotes – October 7, 2014

October 7

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

We will be more reconciled to discussing ourselves with another person when we see good reasons why we should do so. The best reason first: If we skip this vital step, we may not overcome drinking. Time after time newcomers have tried to keep to themselves certain facts about their lives. Trying to avoid this humbling experience, they have turned to easier methods. Almost invariably they got drunk. – Pgs. 72-73 – Into Action

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

‘First Things First’ is definitely a good philosophy but in the third week of recovery it seems impossible. For us at this time the ONLY thing we have to do is stay away from that first fix, pill, or drink.

Whatever problems I think I have, the first and most important consideration is to stay away from that first fix, pill, snort, or drink!

Putting in the Elbow Grease

I will be willing to do the daily work that is required to have the life I want to have. A good life is brought forth through many doors. The door of visualization, the door or seeing and the door of work. As I progress along my path I will learn how to ‘work smarter’. How to use my energies more efficiently and waste less time needlessly. I’ll learn how to get out of my own way and let my energies flow more freely. I’ll learn how to listen to others and make my own decisions, how to have boundaries that are porous and flexible rather than either rigid or weak. I will find my sense of self and be able to sustain it even in the presence of others. I’ll develop strength, wisdom, patience and compassion. I will develop my own unique gifts and strengths.

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

Why wonder why? Why ask why? The ‘why’ questions spring from only one place inside: self-pity. The questions to ask are the ‘how’ questions. The right questions contain clues to the answers we need.

When I ask the right question, I get the right answer.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

Today the faith is working to replace the fear that has held me back.
