About this deal

It was as if I had, rather than a Midas touch which turned everything to gold, a magnifying mind that magnified whatever it focused on.

I trust it today and hope it trusts me to make all effort to find the right thought or action today. After we’ve done all the careful work and waited till the glue is firm, we take it out for a trial flight. Instead of dreading the ending of a time, the departure of a loved one, we must try to appreciate what we have gained already and know that life is fuller for it. If we put poison in the root system, it will affect the tree, and it will become obvious to the rest of the forest what is being fed to the roots. Some of these resources are more approachable alternatives to reading the Big Book in its entirety, while others are intended to be complementary texts that can be read alone or alongside the Big Book.

Vulnerability to alcohol consumption, spiritual transcendence, and psychosocial well-being: test of a theory. Therefore, we alone must make something of ourselves, transforming ourselves into the instruments for experiencing the deepest spiritual essence of life.

We may experience a slight sense of loss — time lost, opportunities lost, a piece of life gone forever.

Working through the negative thoughts associated with depression can help those seeking sobriety, as overcoming symptoms of depression can also help with efforts to overcome addiction.

AA approved literature simply means any literature that reflects the group consciousness and goals when it comes to the treatment path and gaining sobriety. We treasure our “Serenity Prayer” because it brings a new light to us that can dissipate our oldtime and nearly fatal habit of fooling ourselves. The Alcoholics Anonymous daily reflections in Daily Reflections are not focused on the 12 Steps, though you can work the 12 Steps and use the daily reflections at the same time. Recovery is not just about not drinking or using mind- and mood-altering drugs, it’s about so much more. The beauty of the Daily Reflections text is that it is just everyday people who are also on their journey, sharing with you the aspects of AA that helped them to reflect and grow.

Non-personalized content and ads are influenced by things like the content you’re currently viewing and your location (ad serving is based on general location). We need to learn to adapt to change but we also need to learn to tell when a situation is wrong for us and not force ourselves to fit. It was a dilemma unlike anything I had ever faced, but as I found out later on, a necessary one if I was to succeed in this program. Acceptance of our past, acceptance of the conditions presently in our lives that we cannot change, brings relief. I hope that all of my experiences have taught me something and that by sharing my life’s struggles and triumphs I might be able to continue to help others with a similar “dis-ease”, like I have.By completing your purchase, you agree to Audible's Conditions of Use and authorise Audible to charge your designated card or any other card on file.
