Why would you want to miss it?
When Dallas first posted this, I hadn't been a sponsor yet. Today I understand just what the BB is talking about.

Both you and the new man/woman must walk day by day in the
path of spiritual progress. If you persist, remarkable
things will happen. When we look back, we realize that
the things which came to us when we put ourselves in
Godâ€™s hands were better than anything we could have
planned. Follow the dictates of a Higher Power and you
will presently live in a new and wonderful world, no
matter what your present circumstances!
Its still amazes me that I started going to AA to ease the pain just a little, and now I am living a life that is definitely better than anything I could have imagined.
We are all so blessed to be alcoholics, it we weren't we would have missed out on the time of our lives. In my opinion, for what it is worth, I dont think 'earth-people' ever get to experience the joy we alcoholics do. I think you have to go to the bottom, to know how good the top feels.
