Daily Reflections


We finally saw that the inventory should be ours, not
the other man’s. So we admitted our wrongs honestly and
became willing to set these matters straight.

Why is it that the alcoholic is so unwilling to accept
responsibility? I used to drink because of the things
that other people did to me. Once I came to A.A. I was
told to look at where I had been wrong. What did I have
to do with all these different matters? When I simply
accepted that I had a part in them, I was able to put
it on paper and see it for what it was – humanness. I
am not expected to be perfect! I have made errors before
and I will make them again. To be honest about them
allows me to accept them – and myself – and those with whom
I had the differences; from there, recovery is just a
short distance ahead.
