from "Daily Reflections" by A.A. Members for A.A. Members

 

It is easy to let up on the spiritual program of action and rest on our laurels. We are headed for trouble if we do, for alcohol is a subtle. foe. ~ ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, P. 85

When I am in pain it is easy to stay close to the friends I have found in the program. Relief from that pain is found in the solutions contained in A.A.’s Twelve Steps. But when I am feeling good and things are going well, I can become complacent. to put it simply, I become complacent and turn into the problem instead of the solution. I need to get into action, to take stock: where am I and where am I going? A daily inventory will tell me what I must change to regain spiritual balance. Admitting what I find within myself, to God and to another human being, keeps me honest and humble.
