AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Another part of learning good hourly habits is to take time for physical exercise. This is part of the balance of our new lives. We need activity for the well-being of the body and for self-discipline. We can walk, swim, jog, take up sports, aerobics, dance, or even yoga–just as long as we are consistent and somehow active.

Give me the self-discipline to maintain some type of physical activity in my clean and sober life-style.

Managing Added Stress

Stress affects my body and my mind. When I am under stress, I tend to do the same thing more intensely, but less efficiently. Stress undermines my state of health and makes me feel stuck in non productive, compulsive routines. I lose my spontaneity. Stress chemicals do everything from lock in the storage of fat cells to making my hair and nails brittle. Stress adds nothing to my day and it takes away a lot. Today when I feel stressed I will use my stress busters. I will take a walk or exercise, use my breathing to calm and quiet my nervous system, listen to music, take a warm bath or sit quietly by myself and meditate. I know what works best for me to get back into a relaxed space. Sometimes it’s just collapsing in front of my favorite show. But the key is, I will notice when I am stressed and do something to counter it before it spins out of control. Today, I will take responsibility for my own state of calm.

In the words of Father Joe Martin, ‘You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink. But you sure as hell can make them thirsty!’.

Just living my new, free life is often enough to make others ‘thirsty’ for recovery. I don’t always have to carry the message; I am the message.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

I think God’s job is to keep the planets from hitting each other, He’s busy enough with that. I don’t think He takes a lot of time wondering if I’m going to have a parking space at the meeting. – John L.
