Perhaps I am stronger than I think.

clement ci - day 140 attempting abstinence, 60 from self

Abstinence from unplanned time.

  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do impulsively is write something on my todo list.
  • The one thing, the only thing, i can do off plan is recovery, something to maintain my sobriety, when tempted. I have come to believe that it is more important to maintain sobriety than to get things done.

Abstinence from relying on self.

We reviewed our fears thoroughly. We put them on paper, even though we had no resentment in connection with them. We asked ourselves why we had them. Wasn't it because self-reliance failed us? Self-reliance was good as far as it went, but it didn't go far enough. Some of us once had great self-confidence, but it didn't fully solve the fear problem, or any other. When it made us cocky, it was worse.

Perhaps there is a better way - we think so. For we are now on a different basis; the basis of trusting and relying upon God. We trust infinite God rather than our finite selves. We are in the world to play the role He assigns. Just to the extent that we do as we think He would have us, and humbly rely on Him, does He enable us to match calamity with serenity.

We never apologize to anyone for depending upon our Creator. We can laugh at those who think spirituality the way of weakness. Paradoxically, it is the way of strength. The verdict of the ages is that faith means courage. All men of faith have courage. They trust their God. We never apologize for God. Instead we let Him demonstrate, through us, what He can do. We ask Him to remove our fear and direct our attention to what He would have us be. At once, we commence to outgrow fear. p68 AA Big Book.

Thx for starter Mole. goes with today's meditation The Language of Letting Go by Melody Beattie:

"Recovery does not equal abstention from life.
Recovery means learning to live and learning to live fully. Recovery
means exploration, investigation, and experimentation.

means being done with the rigid, shame-based rules from the past, and
formulating healthy values based on self-love, love for others, and
living in harmony with this world.

Try something new. Maybe you won't like it. Maybe you'll make a
mistake. But maybe you will like it, and maybe you'll discover something
you love.

Today, I will give
myself permission to experiment in life. I will stop rigidly holding
myself back, and I will jump in when jumping in feels right. God, help
me let go of my need to deprive myself of being alive. "
