Daily Reflections June 19

Such is the paradox of A.A. regeneration: strength arising out of complete defeat and weakness, the loss of one’s old life as a condition for finding a new one.

A.A. COMES OF AGE, p. 46

Upon joining Alcoholics Anonymous, I was welcomed with open arms. It’s not surprising to me that A.A.’s mantra is “Keep coming back no matter how many times you slip.”

People are always there for one another and have each other’s best interest at heart in this community of recovering alcoholics who want nothing more than to see their friends stay sober-and they’re willing to do anything it takes!

Seeing how I am not and cannot be perfect, the best way to love myself is by doing so imperfectly. Loving my own flaws makes it easier for them to fade away and in turn make room for me to better enjoy life’s joys with no fear of being judged or condemned.

My feelings set me free where my thoughts once had held me captive; I’m grateful!

I’m grateful to be free of the bondage that alcohol had put me in. It’s been a long journey, but it was worth every second because I can now live without fear and guilt.

Alcoholism is not an easy disease to beat, so if you’re struggling with addiction right now don’t give up hope!

You’ll find many people who understand your struggles and want nothing more than for you to succeed in conquering this enemy-friend.
