After physical recovery our sobriety
depends largely how we discipline our
emotions
and live The A.A. Program....
Not just from knowing it.

THE MATURITY PRAYER

God, Grant me the maturity
to accept what I'm feeling
and the courage to correct
the actions that I took
that made me feel this way.

THE MATURITY PRAYER #2

God, Grant me the maturity
to accept the results
that I have created...
and the courage
to change the actions
that I took....
to create these results.

Just try believing in a power OTHER THAN YOURSELF!

You have received without cost...
Now give without charge.

You are only screwing yourself.

My head would have killed me a long time ago...
If it didn't need my body for transportation!

Picking up on The Pacific Group Poop

Postby Dallas » Wed Apr 25, 2007 6:16 am

from the newsletter: Picking up on The Pacific Group Poop
-----------------------------------------------------------

Understanding Life - (One in a series)

a) The real test of self-control is to have had the same flu that someone is complaining to you about and not mentioning it;

b) Most bachelors have no idea of what marital bliss can be like ... but, on the other hand, neither do most married men;

c) The first law of survival in the yard is to look out for number one and don't step in number two;

d) Arguing about how to practice AA always seems to be a lot easier than actually practicing it.

A special thanks to Clancy I., for the above "Understanding Life - (One in a series)".
