Daily Recovery Quotes – September 18

September 18

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

We were having trouble with personal relationships, we couldn’t control our emotional natures, we were a prey to misery and depression, we couldn’t make a living, we had a feeling of uselessness, we were full of fear, we were unhappy, we couldn’t seem to be of real help to other people – was not a basic solution of these bedevilments more important than whether we should see newsreels of lunar flight? Of course it was. – Pg. 52 – We Agnostics

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Many times we go to meetings to listen to what happens to people who don’t go to meetings. When they ask for a topic at today’s meeting, suggest ‘What Happens to People Who Don’t go to Meetings.’

One meeting a day can not possibly take as much time as my former bars, parties, connections, and the energy I put into using and drinking. Help me see that any complaints about the ‘frequency’ is unfounded.

Love What You Have

Today I will love what I have rather than always wanting something to be different before I allow myself to be happy. There is so much in my life right now. When I sit still and allow the life I already have to surround me, there is a feeling of fullness that begins to expand inside of me. When I spend all my time chasing what I think I need in order to be happy, I am never still enough to actually experience this feeling of contentment. Contentment is available to me all the time if I am willing to slow down and allow it to come into me. My happiness has more to do with loving what I already have than regretting or chasing after what I don’t have.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

Ninety per cent of what I do on first contact with a new drunk is to spoon feed him Traditions. ‘Cos if you get a guy in your car and you’re on your way to a meeting and you say: ‘Look, you’re going to have to take a searching and fearless moral inventory.’ you’d better not hit a red light, ‘cos they’re gone. – Doug D.
