Daily Reflections #essentialsofrecovery


In the beginning, it was four whole years before A.A. brought
permanent sobriety to even one alcoholic woman. Like the “high
bottoms, ” the women said they were different; . . . The
Skid-Rower said he was different . . . so did the artists and the
professional people, the rich, the poor, the religious, the agnostic, the
Indians and the Eskimos, the veterans, and the prisoners. . . .
nowadays all of these, and legions more, soberly talk about how very
much alike all of us alcoholics are when we admit that the chips are
finally down.


I cannot consider myself “different” in A.A.; if I do I isolate myself
from others and from contact with my Higher Power. If I feel
isolated in A.A., it is not something for which others are responsible.
It is something I’ve created by feeling I’m “different” in some way.
Today I practice being just another alcoholic in the worldwide Fellowship of
Alcoholics Anonymous.
