Daily Reflections


We are not cured of alcoholism. What we really have is a daily
reprieve contingent on the maintenance of our spiritual condition…

The most common alcoholic fantasy seems to be: “If I just don’t
drink, everything will be all right.” Once the fog cleared for me, I
saw — for the first time — the mess my life had become. I had family,
work, financial and legal problems; I was hung up on old religious
ideas; there were sides of my character to which I was inclined to stay blind
because they easily could have convinced me that I was hopeless and
pushed me toward escape again. The Big Book guided me in
resolving all of my problems. But it didn’t happen overnight — and
certainly not automatically — with no effort on my part. I need always to
recognize God’s mercy and blessings that shine through any problem
I have to face.
