About this deal

Show me what I need to do to take care of my self by letting go of resentments, and then help me do that. The more I practiced, and the more I built, the more comfortable, and happy, was the home I now have to live in. Hallucinating and restrained by sheriff’s deputies and hospital staff, this once-happy family man received an unexpected gift from God—a firm foundation in sobriety that would hold up through good times and bad. On occasion we feel a bit sad as we ready ourselves for bed, knowing that our bedtime routine marks the end of another day.

As is common in psychology, working through your underlying mental health conditions requires a lot of mental work. Sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly, and sometimes in ways we’d least expect, each of the pictures we’d drawn on that wall began to materialize and manifest. When I am having a difficult time accepting people, places or events, I turn to this passage and it relieves me of many an underlying fear regarding others, or situations life presents me. Instead of dreading the ending of a time, the departure of a loved one, we must try to appreciate what we have gained already and know that life is fuller for it. When alcohol influenced every facet of my life, when bottles became the symbol of all my self-indulgence and permissiveness, when I came to realize that, by myself, I could do nothing to overcome the power of alcohol, I realized I had no recourse except surrender.Because AA meetings are peer-led, not every meeting facilitator brings AA literature that is available for purchase to every meeting. We alcoholics were getting round-shouldered from carrying all those loads that drinking put on our shoulders. I also attend an online AA meeting which uses as its subject the Daily Reflections reading for the day and find it easier to open my Kindle to the page being studied and shared upon often rather than trying to keep my place in the hard copy book I have. At other times turning points are endings, such as when I see clearly the need to stop festering resentments or crippling self-seeking. A. meetings, or perhaps I knew, deep down inside, that I couldn’t drink like others, but I was unwilling to admit it because the alternative terrified me.

It is a complicated journey—one that needs to be taken not only day by day but, at times, hour by hour. While focusing broadly on the Three Legacies of Recovery, Unity and Service, this volume offers experience, strength and hope on specific topics such as willingness, faith, making amends—themes that recovering alcoholics must address each day—and reminds us that we are never really alone in Alcoholics Anonymous. In every situation or problem, there is always one step we can take that is more important than the others. A., I no longer regret the past; I am simply grateful to be conscious of God’s love and of the help I can give to others in the Fellowship. Our very first problem is to accept our present circumstances as they are, ourselves as we are, and the people about us as they are.

But we do have to soberly face the fact that being in the public eye is hazardous, especially for us. People with emotional problems, a group that includes many alcoholics, often feel that they are trying to do everything at once. Remember, we aren’t controlling others with our goals – we are trying to give direction to our life.
