Its lovely when clients appreciate
what we do and send us presents
Today, we got a case of really expensive
Boss asked me how many I wanted
"I'll take 3 please"
Its bizarre how I can do this nowadays
Its not long ago infact its aboout 6 months ago
that I would have said no
or said yes and left it under the table at work
in fact I did that about 3-4 months ago
and not had any alcohol in the house
because it would shout at me or I would be scared
at the moment it seems to be ok
when if/it isnt i'll do something about it
Its not for me, I am under no illusion TODAY
and I plan to give some of it away
like when I go see people for dinner etc
Anyway nice to be appreciated sometimes
God and the first 100 AA members popped in today for
an update and gently but firmly asked....
"So the promises came true for you the Johno ?" Yeh I guess
"So have finally you stopped fighting anything and everyone?" umm yes
"So have you been placed in a position
of neutrality then around alcohol?" er yes seems so
"And your sane right ?" well i dunno on that one,
around booze, yeh seems it most of the time
"But your seldom interested in liquor?" you bet!!
"If tempted, Do you recoil from it as from a hot flame?" absolutely
"So you react sanely and normally, and it seems to have happened automatically?" yeh most of the time
"Hows that happened then?" I dunno, it just did the steps, came after Step 9
just like you said it would
"Thats right Johno...That is the miracle of it. We are not fighting it, neither are we avoiding temptation. We feel as though we had been placed in a position of neutrality—safe and protected. We have not even sworn off. Instead, the problem has been removed. It does not exist for us. We are neither cocky nor are we afraid. That is how we react so long as we keep in fit spiritual condition. its all there page P85" "You are just like us, not special or different see?"
you (the Great you) you are so right,
and I dont see my progress,
Thank for popping in Dudes!!
"Glad to see it still works Johno (When you work it),
now dont rest on your laurels mind, or there will be trouble"
