My conscience is telling me...

I need to go to a meeting
with the intention of being useful...

Give freely of what you have been given...

It doesnt say
reap the rewards
and then enjoy it all selfishly

It doesnt say
Having has a spiritual awakening
as the result of these steps
we forget about the still suffering alky
because we are feeling well
all the promises have come true
you know how to work it now
in all you affairs
and know you make your own misery
when you dont
it doesnt say
forget about the newcomer

does it?


Repeat until you stop breathing

I'd love to sit back and simply enjoy my new life but I know I can't keep it unless I give it away. At least that's what they tell me. And the phone calls can sometimes really interrupt my life at home. So I'm trying to get a balance. I want to be there for the suffering alcoholic but I want my life too.

Glad you're happy in your new place..xo

Working with others has so many benefits. Including keeping us sober one more day.

Thank you for the reminder.

I love those words: unity, service, recovery.
