I don’t know what you do when the anger and resentment boil up inside of you. I’m not sure about anything anymore, but I know it’s eating away at me.
Anger is a poison that eats away at your insides until there’s nothing left.
Daily Reflections March 8
Every man and woman who has joined A.A. and intends to stick has, without realizing it, made a beginning on Step Three. Isn’t it true that in all matters touching upon alcohol, each of them has decided to turn his or her life over to the care, protection, and guidance of Alcoholics Anonymous? . . . Any willing newcomer feels sure A.A. is the only safe harbor for the foundering vessel he has become. Now if this is not turning one’s will and life over to a newfound Providence, then what is it?TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 35
I had become so addicted to alcohol that it became my best friend.
Without a single drop of the stuff in me, I felt like an empty vessel waiting for something new and exciting to fill up again; but when submitting myself fully into A.’s program helped release all those old feelings from within—the freedom was amazing!
Even if you don’t believe our spirituality will lead us on this path–I promise there’s no way back after giving yourself over entirely without reserves or reservations (sincere).
Towards the end of my recovery, I learned that submission to God was the first step.
Through Fellowship and service in A.A., I’ve been able to change my attitude towards Him and see a freedom that gives me the ability to think for myself.
My addiction confined me without any release, but with AA there is hope for everyone who seeks it out.
Mutual sharing, concern and caring are our natural gifts given freely by others – mine has only strengthened since changing how I view God’s will in my life.”
