JohnTBegin created a topic: Hitting Bottom 4 hours ago
Daily Reflections HITTING BOTTOM Why all this insistence that every A.A. must hit bottom first? The answer is that few people will sincerely try to practice the A.A. program unless they have hit bottom. For practicing A.A.'s remaining eleven Steps means the adoption of attitudes and actions that almost no alcoholic who is still drinking can dream of taking. TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 24 Hitting bottom opened my mind and I became willing to try something different. Wha...[More]
JohnTBegin created a topic: An Unsuspected Inner Resource 1 day ago
Daily Reflections AN UNSUSPECTED INNER RESOURCE With few exceptions our members find that they have tapped an unsuspected inner resource which they presently identify with their own conception of a Power greater than themselves. ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, pp. 569-70 From my first days in A.A., as I struggled for sobriety, I found hope in these words from our founders. I often pondered the phrase: "they have tapped an unsuspected inner resource." How, I asked myself, can I find the Pow...[More]

But the ex-problem drinker who has found this solution, who is properly armed with facts about himself, can generally win the entire confidence of another alcoholic in a few hours. Until such an understanding is reached, little or nothing can be accomplished. Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, There Is A Solution, p. 18, with permission from AAWS Topic: How did your sponsor help you with your recovery?
JohnTBegin created a topic: The 100% Step 5 days ago
Daily Reflections THE 100% STEP Only Step One, where we made the 100 percent admission we were powerless over alcohol, can be practiced with absolute perfection. TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 68 Long before I was able to obtain sobriety in A.A., I knew without a doubt that alcohol was killing me, yet even with this knowledge, I was unable to stop drinking. So, when faced with Step One, I found it easy to admit that I lacked the power to not drink. But was my li...[More]
JohnTBegin created a topic: Group and World-Wide Community 7 days ago
As Bill Sees It Group and World-Wide Community The moment Twelfth Step work forms a group, a discovery is made - that most individuals cannot recover unless there is a group. Realization dawns on each member that he is but a small part of a great whole; that no personal sacrifice is too great for preservation of the Fellowship. He learns that the clamor of desires and ambitions within him must be silenced whenever these could damage the group. It becomes plain that t...[More]
JohnTBegin created a topic: An Act Of Providence 7 days ago
Daily Reflections An Act Of Providence It is truly awful to admit that, glass in hand, we have warped our minds into such an obsession for destructive drinking that only an act of Providence can remove it from us. Twelve Steps And Twelve Traditions, p. 21 My act of Providence, (a manifestation of divine care and direction), came as I experienced the total bankruptcy of active alcoholism---everything meaningful in my life was gone. I telephoned Alcoholics Anonymous and...[More]
JohnTBegin created a topic: A New Life 8 days ago
As Bill Sees It A New Life Is sobriety all that we are to expect of a spiritual awakening? No, sobriety is only a bare beginning; it is only the first gift of the first awakening. If more gifts are to be received, our awakening has to go on. As it does go on, we find that bit by bit we can discard the old life - the one that did not work - for a new life that can and does work under any conditions whatever. Regardless of worldly success or failure, regardless of pain or ...[More]
JohnTBegin created a topic: Do I Have A Choice? 8 days ago
Daily Reflections Do I Have A Choice? The fact is that most alcoholics, for reason yet obscure, have lost the power of choice in drink. Our so-called will power becomes practically nonexistent. Alcoholics Anonymous, P. 24 My powerlessness over alcohol does not cease when I quit drinking. In sobriety I still have no choice---I can't drink. The choice I do have is to pick up and use the "kit of spiritual tools" (Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 25). When I do that, my Higher power...[More]
