Default How Do We Stay Away From Drinking

Quote:
From "How Do We Stay away from Drinking?"


"We change ourselves, gradually, day
to day. We help other alcoholics. And,
by helping, we stay sober, sane and happy.
For the first time in our lives, we've
found real freedom. For we have broken
out of the dim prison of alcoholic
drinking that was closing in around us.
Now we are free to discover who we are,
who we hope to become, who we were meant
to be."

c. 1992, Young People and A.A.

Always a good reminder, when you are hurting, get out of self, and help someone else. Service was an important part of my recovery. I know I wouldn't have stayed sober without it.

Even if you aren't hurting, if you get a thought of someone, pick up the phone or say a prayer for them. Today, I called friend only to find that she was stressed and worried about her granddaughter who went into labour early.

I called my sister the yesterday who lived about 300 miles away from me, only to find that she had a really bad cold bordering on pneumonia. I try not to pooh who thoughts away these days, I try to offer them up in prayer, and when able, follow them up with action.
