MAY 21 in The Little Blue Book ONE DAY at a TIME in AL-ANON:

Sometimes, an over-eager newcomer asks a number of people for advice about a problem or is forever calling up various members to get their views on her troubles. For her, there is one good piece of advice: “Get yourself one sponsor, and stop confusing yourself by trying to coordinate too many opinions.”

She is trying to get all the answers at once, because she’s in a hurry to put Al-Anon’s magic to work. She assumes, of course, that she will be wise enough to sort out the right answer for her, from the welter of personal opinions, but her whole approach shows that she would be incapable of making a wise decision. She needs to go slow, let go, keep it simple.

Today’s Reminder

Even when an Al-Anon member shows a confused or negative approach to the program, it can be a lesson to me. A single one of The Twelve Steps, a single Slogan, or the Serenity Prayer, used constantly, can clear my thinking and help me to solve my problem in a way that is right for me.

“Let not my thinking become confused by listening to too many opinions, but let me consider each one individually to see if it can be of help to me.”
