Kevin P. Joins us from Jacksonville Beach, FL where he's a Professional Therapist. Kevin shares on the topic of beginning where you are... Starting with the elimination of alcohol - that's merely the ticket to the show. The real challenge comes when we face the challenges of daily life.
BEGIN WHERE YOU ARE
We feel that the elimination of our drinking is but a beginning. A much more important demonstration of our principles lies before us in our respective homes, occupations, and affairs.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 19
It's usually pretty easy for me to be pleasant to the people in an A.A. setting. While I'm working to stay sober, I'm celebrating with my fellow A.A.S our common release from the hell of drinking. It's often not so hard to spread glad tidings to my old and new friends in the program. At home or at work, though, it can be a different story. It is in situations arising in both of those areas that the little day-to-day frustrations are most evident, and where it can be tough to smile or reach out with a kind word or an attentive ear. It's outside of the A.A. rooms that I face the real test of the effectiveness of my walk through A.A.'s Twelve Steps.Support the show
