Your Daily Reprieve for Monday August 3, 2020
From Waynesville, NC
“It is very difficult to steer a parked car
and make much progress toward any destination ...
In short, I had to be going somewhere
before I could be guided.”
~Grapevine: Rochester, NY, October 1979
We can do anything for one day.
So, just for today, let us be unafraid of life,
unafraid of death which is the shadow of life;
unafraid to be happy, to enjoy the beautiful, to believe the best. . . .
Just for today, let us be agreeable, responsive,
be our best , dress our best, walk softly,
praise people for what they do, n
ot criticize them for what they cannot do.
And if we find fault, let us forgive and forget it.
-Joseph Fort Newton
Now and then it’s good
to pause in our pursuit of happiness
and just be happy.
Life is tension.
Without tension, there could be no life.
Too little tension or too much tension
interferes with the process of life
in the same way a string of a guitar interferes
with the melody when it is
either too loose or too tight.
Big Book Quote
have excuses with which they are satisfied part of the time. But in their
hearts they really do not know why they do it. Once this malady has a real
hold, they are a baffled lot. There is the obsession that somehow, someday,
they will beat the game. But they often suspect they are down for the

Tradition Three - "The only requirement for A.A. membership
is a desire to stop drinking."
S L I P
. . . TO BE OF SERVICE
Our real purpose is to fit ourselves to be of maximum
service to God and the people about us.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 77
It is clear that God's plan for me is expressed through love.
God loved me enough to take me from alleys and jails so
that I could be made a useful participant in His world. My
response is to love all of His children through service and
by example. I ask God to help me imitate His love for me
through my love for others.
"The problem with isolating is that you get such bad advice."
By the end of my drinking, I was all alone. Unlike some of the stories I hear about people drinking in bars, I preferred to drink alone in my home. My friends were gone, my family wasn’t inviting me over, and it was just me and my alcohol. After months of listening to my own best thinking, I had run out of options and was at the end of my rope. By some miracle, I was able to reach out for help, and my journey in recovery began.
