AA 01/17 Daily Reflection

Take the first step to recovery!
HAPPINESS COMES QUIETLY
“The trouble with us alcoholics was this: We demanded that the world give us happiness and peace of mind in just the particular order we wanted to get it-by the alcohol route. And we weren’t successful. But when we take time to find out some of the spiritual laws, and familiarize ourselves with them, and put them into practice, then we do get happiness and peace of mind. . . . There seem to be some rules that we have to follow, but happiness and peace of mind are always here, open and free to anyone.”
— DR. BOB AND THE GOOD OLDTIMERS, p. 308
The simplicity of the A.A. program teaches me that happiness isn’t something I can “demand.” It comes upon me quietly, while I serve others. In offering my hand to the newcomer or to someone who has relapsed, I find that my own sobriety has been recharged with indescribable gratitude and happiness.
Happiness comes from within you. Treat others with respect and work on your defects for happiness and wholeness.

The Day of Gratitude

“I am grateful for….”

Thanksgiving is the day where most people come together to eat a lot of food, drink a lot of alcohol, and go around the table saying what they are grateful for. Thanksgiving is a good reminder to be grateful for the little things in life. I need that reminder everyday because I am an addict. 

Today, I can say I am grateful for being an addict. Addiction is hard and can be a daily struggle. God doesn’t choose just anyone to be an addict, but he chose me. Why would God give me such an awful and debilitating illness? God doesn’t give you more than you can handle. God gave the disease of addiction to me because my higher power knew I was up for the challenge and that I could manage my addiction. That is why I am grateful today. I am thankful that my God has so much confidence in me to overcome my addiction. Now it is time I help others overcome this terrible, but manageable disease. 

So I guess it is safe to say I have Thanksgiving everyday minus all the food and alcohol!

Have a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving!!

Make it Happen!

 

Own your day

 

It’s in all of the us. We have the capability to do anything we put our minds too. It all depends on how bad do you want it? I had to adopt this mindset during my recovery. In the beginning of recovery the shame, guilt, resentments all flooded in. I used those emotions to fuel the fire to push through the pain, and because of that I haven’t had a drink in 425 days. For a hopeless drunk like me, thats profound. If i can do it, you can do it! We can do it! Be humble, be honest, and be the hardest working person in the room! Have a great week!
