Then came Friday...

By this last Friday, I was feeling fairly exhausted. So I go to take a nap before the Big Book Study meeting. Right. I woke up long after the meeting had come and gone. I wasn't feeling real chipper. By Saturday morning, I realized I had come down with a bug of some kind. I did a lot of chicken soup etc...I was hoping maybe it was just a 24 hour thing. Sunday, I wake up with a low grade temp, 99.8. I feel like 8 miles of bad road. Even though I feel like crap and really can't go any where but potty and bed, that doesn't mean that I stop working my program. I have to do the best I can regardless of how I feel physically. Alcoholism is far more patient than I am, and it is always lurking in the background waiting for a weak moment. So for me, I have to touch the principles of this program of AA daily. Even when I have the weakness that a flu brings, I can still gather strength from doing what I have to do, like reading AA literature, pray, and journal when I can. When all else fails, grab the AA Big Book!


The tremendous fact for every one of us is that we have discovered a common solution. We have a way out on which we can absolutely agree, and upon which we can join in brotherly and harmonious action. This is the great news this book carries to those who suffer from alcoholism.
