About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

Chapter 6. INTO ACTION page 85
Much has already been said
about receiving strength, inspiration, and direction
from Him who has all knowledge and power.

page 50
This Power
has in each case accomplished the miraculous,
the humanly impossible.

Chapter 5. HOW IT WORKS page 63
This was only a beginning,
though if honestly and humbly made,
an effect,
sometimes a VERY great one,
was felt AT ONCE.

Chapter 5. HOW IT WORKS page 63
As we felt new power flow in,
as we enjoyed peace of mind,
as we discovered we could face life successfully,
as we became conscious of His presence,
we began to lose our fear of today, tomorrow or the hereafter.

Chapter 6. INTO ACTION page 83
We will suddenly realize
that God is doing for us
what we could not do for ourselves.

Chapter 1. BILL'S STORY page 13
My friend promised when these things were done
I WOULD enter upon a new relationship with my Creator;

For faith in a Power greater than ourselves,
and miraculous demonstrations of that power in human lives,
are facts as old as man himself.
