Recovery Quotes

For Today --        The first requirement is that we be convinced that any life runon self-will can hardly be a success.

Recovery Quotes

For Today -- A sensation appears, and liking or disliking begins. This fleeting moment, if we are unaware of it, is repeated and intensified into craving and aversion, becoming a strong emotion that eventually overpowers the conscious mind. We become caught up in the emotion, and all our better judgment is swept aside. The result is that we find ourselves engaged in unwholesome speech and action, harming ourselves and others. We create misery for ourselves, suffering now and in the future,…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today – Our sound reasoning failed to hold us in check. The insane idea won out.

Recovery Quotes

For Today – Most of our experiences are what the psychologist William James calls the “educational variety” because they develop slowly over a period of time. Quite often friends of the new-comer are aware of the difference long before he is himself.  -- Spiritual Experience, Alcoholics Anonymous***************************************************************************** To live for results would be to sentence myself to continuous frustration.

Recovery Quotes

For Today --What sort of thinking dominates an alcoholic who repeats time after time the desperate experiment of the first drink? Friends who have reasoned with him after a spree which has brought him to the point of divorce or bankruptcy are mystified when he walks directly into a saloon. Why does he? Of what is he thinking?-- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 35**************************************************************************No man ever understands quite his own artful dodges to escape from…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today – Were we kind and loving toward all?-- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 86 ******************************************************************** We are not obliged to like anyone; but we are under a binding obligation to love everyone, love, or charity as the Bible calls it, meaning a vivid sense of impersonal good will. This has nothing directly to do with the feelings, though it is always followed, sooner or later, by a wonderful feeling of peace and happiness.-- The Sermon on the Mount,…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today – Perhaps the best thing of all for me is to remember that my serenity is inversely proportional to my expec­tations. The higher my expectations of Max and other people are, the lower is my serenity. I can watch my serenity level rise when I discard my expectations. But then my “rights” try to move in, and they, too, can force my serenity level down. I have to discard my “rights,” as well as my expectations, by asking myself, “How important is it, really? How important is it com­pared…See More

For Today --If the man be agnostic or atheist, make it emphatic that he does not have to agree with your conception of God. He can choose any conception he likes, provided it makes sense to him. -- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 93***********************************************************************My atheism, like that of Spinoza, is true piety towards the universe and denies only gods fashioned by men in their own image to be servants of their human interests. --George…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today – We had a new Employer. Being all powerful, He provided what we needed, if we kept close to Him and performed His work well. Established on such a footing we became less and less interested in ourselves, our little plans and designs. More and more we became interested in seeing what we could contribute to life.   -- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 63****************************************************************************If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no…See More

Recovery Quotes

For Today – We began to see that the world and its people really dominated us. In that state, the wrong-doing of others, fancied or real, had power to actually kill. How could we escape?-- Alcoholics Anonymous, page 66*********************************************************************To become the spectator of one's own life is to escape the suffering of life.  -- Oscar Wilde*********************************************************************… “let go of the story” —and return to the only…See More

A woman should be able to be both independent and dependent, active and passive, relaxed and serious, practical and romantic, tender and tough minded, thinking and feeling, dominant and submissive. So, obviously, should a man!
