Arrow As Bill Sees It for 1/30/2013

*~*~*~*~*^AsBill SeesIt^*~*~*~*~*

Getting off a "Dry Bender"

"Sometimes, we become depressed. I ought to know; I have been a champion dry-bender case myself. While the surface causes were a part of the picture - trigger-events that precipitated depression - the underlying causes, I am satisfied, ran much deeper.
"Intellectually, I could accept my situation. Emotionally, I could not.
"To these problems, there are certainly no pat answers. But part of the answer surely lies in the constant effort to practice all of A.A.'s Twelve Steps."

LETTER, 1954

Acceptance. I can definitely see myself doing exactly this trying to accept a situation. I can intellectually accept it, but do I really deep down? How do I do this?

The greatest journey is from my head to my heart. So many things in my recovery had to make that arduous trek. I'm slow on the uptake in emotional affairs that my mind has already swallowed, but it gets done! It's all part of my emotional growth, stunted by too many mickeys and bottles.

When I get in a funk, I simply pick up those things that work.

A extra meeting, extra prayer in the day, get outside and hike, that always brings me back to being humble and grateful to just be here.
I am responsible. When anyone, anywhere, reaches out for help, I want the hand of A.A. always to be there. And for that: I am responsible.
