Daily Reflections


We feel that elimination of our drinking is but a
beginning. A much more important demonstration of our
principles lies before us in our respective homes,
occupations and affairs.

It’s usually pretty easy for me to be pleasant to the
people in an A.A. setting. While I’m working to stay
sober, I’m celebrating with my fellow A.A.s our common
release from the hell of drinking. It’s often not so
hard to spread glad tidings to my old and new friends
in the program.  At home or at work, though, it can be
a difference story. It is in situations arising in
both of those areas that the little day-to-day
frustrations are most evident, and where it can be
tough to smile or reach out with a kind word or an
attentive ear. It’s outside of the A.A. rooms that
I face the real test of the effectiveness of my walk
through A.A.’s Twelve Steps.
