AA Thought for the Day

May 27

Spiritually Sick
This was our course: We realized that the people who wronged us were perhaps spiritually sick.
Though we did not like their symptoms and the way these disturbed us, they, like ourselves,
were sick too. We asked God to help us show them the same tolerance, pity, and patience that
we would cheerfully grant a sick friend.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 66 - 67

Thought to Ponder . . .
What if I were caring rather than judgmental?

AA-related 'Alconym' . . .
A S A P = Always Say A Prayer.

~*~A.A. Thoughts For The Day~*~

"The great fact is just this, and nothing less:
That we have had deep and effective
spiritual experiences which have revolutionized
our whole attitude toward life,
toward our fellows, and toward God's universe.
The central fact of our lives today
is the absolute certainty
that our Creator has entered our hearts and lives
in a way which is indeed miraculous.
He has commenced to accomplish those things for us
which we could never do by ourselves."
Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 25

Thought to Consider . . .
Patience with others is Love,
Patience with self is Hope,
Patience with God is Faith.

>From "He Lived Only to Drink":
"I was also able to realize that this bonfire of resentment and rage was beckoning me to pick up a drink and plunge in to
my death. Then I realized that I had to separate my sobriety from everything else that was going on in my life. No matter
what happened or didn't happen, I couldn't drink. In fact, none of these things that I was going through had anything to do
with my sobriety; the tides of life flow endlessly for better or worse, both good and bad, and I cannot allow my sobriety to
become dependent on these ups and downs of living. Sobriety must live a life of its own."
2001 AAWS, Inc., Fourth Edition; Alcoholics Anonymous, pgs. 450-51

*~*~*~*~*^ Grapevine Quote ^*~*~*~*~*

"I have learned in the program not to listen to the voice of my ego when it starts whispering things."
Clayton, Calif., May 2012
AA Grapevine

~*~*~*~*^ Big Book & Twelve N' Twelve Quotes of the Day ^*~*~*~*~*

"Despite all we can say, many who are real alcoholics are not going
to believe they are in that class. By every form of self-deception
and experimentation, they will try to prove themselves exceptions to
the rule, therefore nonalcoholic. If anyone who is showing inability
to control his drinking can do the right-about-face and drink like a
gentleman, our hats are off to him. Heaven knows, we have tried hard
enough and long enough to drink like other people!"
~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, More About Alcoholism, pg. 31~

"The fact is that most alcoholics, for reasons yet obscure, have lost
the power of choice in drink. Our so-called will power becomes
practically nonexistent. We are unable, at certain times, to bring
into our consciousness with sufficient force the memory of the
suffering and humiliation of even a week or a month ago. We are
without defense against the first drink."
~Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th Edition, There Is A Solution, pg. 24~

Alcoholics especially should be able to see that instinct run wild in
themselves is the underlying cause of their destructive drinking.
-Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, p. 44

Misc. AA Literature - Quote

We can be grateful for every agency or method that tries to solve the problem of alcoholism--whether of medicine,
religion, education, or research. We can be open-minded toward all such efforts and we can be sympathetic when the
ill-advised ones fail. We can remember that A.A. itself ran for years on 'trial and error.'
As individuals, we can and should work with those that promise success--even a little success.
Every one of the pioneers in the total field of alcoholism will generously say that had it not been for the living proof of
recovery in A.A., they could not have gone on. A.A. was the lodestar of hope and help that kept them at it.

Prayer For The Day: Prayers for Those Torn by Alcohol and Drugs - I pray, O God of hope, for all persons and families whose lives are torn and disrupted by drugs and alcohol. Enable them to identify the illness. Strengthen them to seek help. Bless them with the power of your love, which imparts transformation and wholeness to those who trust in your name. Grant that as they walk this tortured road, they may journey together, bound close together in the bond of love. Shine your light upon them, Lord Christ, that they may see the path out of their misery, and give them the strength to follow it. Amen.
"No matter what you have done up to this moment, you get 24 brand-new hours to spend every single day." --Brian Tracy
AA gives us an opportunity to recreate ourselves, with God's help, one day at a time. --Rufus K.
When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. --Franklin D. Roosevelt
We stay sober and clean together - one day at a time!
God says that each of us is worth loving.
