No words can tell of the loneliness and despair I found in that bitter morass of self-pit. Quicksand stretched around me in all directions. I had met my match. I had been overwhelmed. Alcohol was my master. Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, Bill's Story, pg. 8, with permission from AAWS Topic: How would you describe meting your match?
JohnTBegin created a topic: Topic for the Week 13 days ago
The classification of alcoholics seems most difficult, and in much detail is outside the scope of this book. There are, of course, the psychopaths who are emotionally unstable. We are all familiar with this type. They are always "going on the wagon for keeps." They are over-remorseful and make many resolutions, but never a decision. There is the type of man who is unwilling to admit that he cannot take a drink. He plans various ways of drinking. He changes his brand or his environment. T...[More]

Our 12 Steps are useless unless practiced. HOW GROUPS WORK Rarely have we seen a group fail that has thoroughly followed A.A.’s Traditions. Those who do not follow them are groups who cannot or will not accept these simple principles, usually groups that are constitutionally incapable of being humble. There are such unfortunate groups. They are not at fault; they seem to have begun that way. They are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of functioning ...[More]

HOW IT WORKS COMMENTARY part 2 of 2 3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care and direction of God as we understood Him. (There are 3 words here that are important to understand. For a long time, I thought that the 3rd Step said that I turn my will and my life over to the care of God. But it doesn’t say that. What it says is that I make a decision to turn my will and life over to the care of God. So the 1st word that needs to be understood here is the word dec...[More]

This is the opening of the Big Book’s chapter 5 “How It Works” in the Original Manuscript that was sent out to inform the Fellowship that there had been progress made in the writing of the Book, and so that the last changes could be made a few months before the Big Book was published on April 10, 1939. “How It Works” was written and re-written over 30 times and this is h...[More]

Our 12 Steps are the tools we need to use to free ourselves from the bondage of self, being selfish, self-seeking, self-absorbed, self-centeredness. HOW TO CARRY THE MESSAGE IN STEP TWELVE The 12th Step reads that having had a spiritual awakening, we try to carry this message to others. Our message is one of hope, love, comfort, health --a better way of life, 1 that works. How do we carry it? Not by rescuing. Not by controlling. Not by obsessing. Not by becoming evan...[More]
JohnTBegin created a topic: Unremitting Inventories 1 month ago
Daily Reflections UNREMITTING INVENTORIES Continue to watch for selfishness, dishonesty, resentment, and fear. When these crop up, we ask God at once to remove them. We discuss them with someone immediately and make amends quickly if we have harmed anyone. Then we resolutely turn our thoughts to someone we can help. ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 84 The immediate admission of wrong thoughts or actions is a tough task for most human beings, but for recovering alcoholic...[More]
