Daily Recovery Quotes – September 23, 2014

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

Men and women drink essentially because they like the effect produced by alcohol. The sensation is so elusive that, while they admit it is injurious, they cannot after a time differentiate the true from the false. To them, their alcoholic life seems the only normal one. They are restless, irritable adn discontented, unless they can again experience the sense of ease and comfort which comes at once by taking a few drinks – drinks which they see others taking with impunity. After they have succumbed to the desire again, as so many do, and the phenomenon of craving develops, they pass through the well-known stages of a spree, emerging remorseful, with a firm resolution not to drink again. This is repeated over and over, and unless this person can experience an entire psychic change there is little hope of his recovery. – Pg. xxviii-xxix – 4th. Edition – The Doctor’s Opinion

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

Even though you are a unique human being, you are not so unique that your recovery is any different then thousands before you. If you think we don’t understand, then your disease is playing tricks on you because it doesn’t want you getting well with us.

I name three reasons why I am just like every other chemical dependent seeking recovery.

Endless Opportunities

I can start over each day. I can start over each hour of each day. The universe is impersonal in that sense. It’s always waiting for me to tell it what I want. Like attracts like. I tell the world what I want more of, by what I am thinking and feeling right now, right this minute. Today, every hour on the hour, I will allow myself to see something positive about my day. I’ll let myself send out an order by my pleasant thoughts and feelings for more of the same. When I catch myself heading down a negative path I’ll stop and consciously observe what is going through my mind. Life is full of chances and so is my day. I can start it over any time I want to.

Pocket Sponsor – Book – Quote

Courage is more complex than spontaneous reactions to traumatic events. It may take courage to rush into a burning building or jump in a river to save a life, but they are almost instinctual. Sharing your deep feelings might be an act of courage far beyond gallant feats.

My courage is my fear in action.

Alkiespeak – Book – Quote

I got side-tracked; it wasn’t that I was born needing six drinks, just Twelve Steps. – Trip S.
