More "Promises"

Postby sunlight » Sat Feb 07, 2009 12:34 pm

If we are casual with this phase of our development, we will be drunk before we are halfway through.

We are going to know a new imprisonment & a new misery.

We will relive the past & won't be able to shut the door on it.

We will comprehend the word CONFLICT and we will know PAIN.

No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we'll sink even lower.

That feeling of uselessness & self-pity will deepen.

We will gain interest in selfish things & lose interest in our fellows.

Self esteem will slip away.

Our whole attitude & outlook upon life will SUCK.

Fear of people, & of economic insecurity will multiply.

We will intuitively know how to run from situations which never used to bother us.

We will suddenly realize that God would never have done to us what we are doing to ourselves.

Are these extravagant promises? We think not! They are being fulfilled among those of us who are still drinking - sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly.

They will always materialize, IF WE DRINK FOR THEM.

This is great, Sunlight. Thanks for sharing it.
I've read the 12 Steps in Reverse, which is humorous but I can't remember ever reading the Promises in Reverse!!!

Thank you for posting this great find!!!

Hiya Sunlight,

Thanks for sharing this, it is SO true. These promises also come true if one puts down the drink but doesn't work the steps.

Lived it.

Hugs to you,
