Continuing to do anything in our daily lives usually means getting better at it. And so it goes with Step Ten of AA Alcoholics Anonymous. Nobody ever really enjoys admitting to being wrong, it’s much easier to blame others. Admitting when we are wrong and promptly being accountable for our side of the street is absolutely necessary in order for us to maintain our spiritual progress in recovery. The best part about practicing the Tenth Step of AA in our daily lives is that the more we exercise self-discovery, honesty, humility, and reflection, the fewer apologies, and amends we have to make!...

“Every A.A. has found that he can make little headway in this new adventure of living until he first backtracks and really makes an accurate and unsparing survey of the human wreckage he has left in his wake.” Remember, you have acted with courage working all of your previous steps in AA and staying sober! With Step Eight you have the opportunity to translate your experience of courage into developing a compassionate spirit. The exact wording of step 8 is: Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all. “The readiness to take the full consequences...

Step Seven of AA’s Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step recovery program is about getting rid of character defects and replacing them by practicing humility and spiritual principles. Working on the seventh step requires frequent thoughtfulness and commitment to being honest, courageous, and humble. We discovered our assets and shortcomings when working on steps four and five. With Step 7 we became prepared to deal with these qualities so that in Step 7 we could be ready to act. The exact wording of step 7 is: Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings. Tonight, we talk about Step 7 3:25 To...

Recovery Topic is

Living Life on Life’s Terms

We are told that if we live life on life’s terms, we have a chance at being happy.

So let’s talk about being happy

 

Happy before program and 

happy in early recovery

When you were a child, how did you find happiness and comfort in life?

 

When you were in your addiction, how did you find satisfaction in life?

When life was unfair, how did you react before program?

Early in your program:

 

where did you find comfort?

how did you cope with life of early sobriety?

One promise is to know a new freedom and new happiness..

 

What does this mean to you?

The trick to taking Life on it’s own terms is to practice being satisfied.  

 

That is to accept the reality of what is before you. And do it often.

I would like to hear your thoughts how to practice being satisfied?

 

Tell us your experience regarding accepting reality.

Is working the steps a way of practicing being satisfied?, How?  Which one?

How does your spiritual life help you to live life on life’s terms?

 

What slogan helps you live life on life’s terms?

How does your sponsor help you to live life on life’s terms?

We have Calls, want to take some calls?

The skill in seeing reality clearly requires us to be free from ego 

 

Your thoughts about ego and seeing reality?

What has been your experience with ego and how has this affected your happiness?

What about when life isn’t fair, how do you handle this now that you are in program?

 

How do you handle unjust situations?

How do you differentiate between acceptance and being a doormat?

 

How does the serenity prayer work with living life on life’s terms?

How does the Acceptance statement (Acceptance is the answer to all my problems today…) relate to living life on life’s terms?

 

What would you say to the new guy about Living Life on Life’s terms?
