A Little less Conversation A little more ACTION

a practical program of action.P9

We have a way out on which we can absolutely agree, and upon which we can join in brotherly and harmonious action.P17

Then they outlined the spiritual answer and program of action which a hundred of them had followed successfully.P42

Next we launched out on a course of vigorous action,P63

Chapter 6 INTO ACTION P76

We have then completed Step Seven. Now we need more action, without which we find that “Faith without works is dead.”P76

Before taking drastic action P80.

It is easy to let up on the spiritual program of action and rest on our laurels. We are headed for trouble if we do, for alcohol is a subtle foe. We are not cured of alcoholism.P85

when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or action.P87

But this is not all. There is action and more action. “Faith without works is dead.” P88

To be vital, faith must be accompanied by self sacrifice and unselfish, constructive action.P93

Outline the program of action P94

After satisfying yourself that your man wants to recover and that he will go to any extreme to do so, you may suggest a definite course of action P142

The two friends spoke of their spiritual experience and told him about the course of action they carried out.P157

In other words, if you think you may be an alcoholic
If you have tried to stop drinking or tried to control your drinking
and found you can't, and you have decided AA probably is for you
even though you dont really want it to be...

fed up of listening to the sound of your own head?
Fed up of listening to the sound of your own voice?

Stop thinking and do the steps
if you are on Step 1 and want step 12
Dont wait til you get well before doing the steps
Dont wait til your life gets better before doing the steps
Dont rely on pink clouds
Self knowledge is not enough
Self will is not enough - and its hard work
Get well by using the steps
Do the steps, all of them in order
The lift to sobriety is broken, please use the steps
Get on with the programme
Get a Sponsor and do the steps
Less analysis, more action
Quit debating
Do not delay
Stop Fighting
Surrender to Win
Take the cotton wool out of your ears and put it in your mouth
Do the steps
Trust the process
Its a Programme of Action, not thinking
Post step 9
Maintain, improve, and pass it on
and practice these principles in ALL you affairs
Step10, 11, 12 in ALL your affairs

Its so damn worth it!!

Act your way into right thinking
Not think your way into right acting

An a Word from God via His Chief choir boy



A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation aint satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby

God wants us Happy, joyeous and free...

Gods will not mine be done

Enjoy not endure

its true :)

I didn't get drunk without taking the proper action; I won't stay sober without action as well.

Thanks for another good BB study reminder. If we don't work the steps, then we won't recover. That's a given.
