This is a daily reflection for Alcoholics Anonymous. Today, June 15, we reflect on our willingness to change.
We accept that we are not perfect and that we need to make changes in our lives. We are open to doing whatever it takes to get sober and stay sober.
This is the first step on the road to recovery. Keep working at it, and you will see positive results!
Daily Reflections June 15
“. . .You can . . . make A.A. itself your ‘higher power.’ Here’s a very large group of people who have solved their alcohol problem. . . . many members . . . have crossed the threshold just this way. . . . their faith broadened and deepened. . . . transformed, they came to believe in a Higher Power. . . .”TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, pp. 27-28
No one was greater than I, at least in my eyes when drinking.
Nevertheless, for years I couldn’t smile at myself in the mirror so after much effort with Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) where they taught a Higher Power and how to be humble about it all-time passed by until finally something clicked!
The more questions asked of this new belief led me down an unfamiliar path towards understanding what God really wants from us which is nothing less than complete submission on behalf of ourselves as well our loved ones who are struggling too; thus giving them strength through empathy + unconditional love..
Alcoholics Anonymous is the only organization in the world which will help you find a Higher Power. We are here for anyone who wants to stop drinking and live their lives free of alcohol addiction.
Our meetings, online chat groups, literature and other resources can give you peace of mind that there’s always someone to talk with or rely on when life gets tough.
If you’re struggling, don’t wait another day; take this first step towards recovery today by attending your nearest A.A meeting where we’ll be waiting with open arms!
