Arrow Big Book Quote for 1/29/2013

*~*~*~*~*^ BigBookQuote^*~*~*~*~*

"Suppose we fall short of the chosen ideal and stumble? Does this
mean we are going to get drunk. Some people tell us so. But this is
only a half-truth. It depends on us and on our motives."

~ Alcoholics Anonymous 1st Edition How It Works pg. 70~

My sex ideal is based upon examining my past patterns and behaviors and understanding the motives and causes for them, and then shaping it into something that is healthy, sane and allows for growth. My relationships with women in the past had been unhealthy and now I strive for something much higher and that is along God's plan. To go back to my old habits, attitudes and instincts when it comes to women is a slippery slope to old thinking, which can lead me to the drink. Comporting myself in a manner that lines up with God's will is all I can do.

Check my motives. If there is selfishness or self-will involved, and a lot of the time there is, it's time to reevaluate.
