The Big Book

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

Let’s start with the steps as an introduction to this topic

Step 2 reads

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

Step 2 tells the new person that the alcoholic life is an insane one and that there is a solution.

Before program, what did you understand insanity to be?

Did you think you were insane before program?

What about your attitude toward liquor, did you think you were abnormal regarding drink?

What about when you first entered the program, how was this form of insanity toward liquor explained?

What does sanity mean to you now?

But this stp is not just for the new guy.

I spend alot of time on this step because I forget who is in charge when I take my will back.

Then I become miserable, my life can get out of control, I can feel that insanity has returned.

1. What things are you doing over and over and expecting different results?

2. If step 2 is true and a higher power is needed for sanity, What is preventing you from believing that God can restore you to sanity?

3. In what ways do you see God at work restoring you to sanity?

4. In what areas of your life are you still demonstrating self-will?

5. What are you doing now that is interfering with your relationship with your higher power?

We are about the solution.

What steps, prayers, slogans do you use to bring yourself back to sanity?

What is the role of your sponsor relative to sanity?

WE HAVE CALLS!

The following are suggested for sane living.  Please comment.

 

  1. Live simple

  2. Learn to like work

  3. Learn a hobby

  4. Practice being satisfied

  5. Learn to like people

  6. Make use of adversity

  7. Live in the moment

  8. Ignore irritations

  9. Practice objectivity - feelings are not facts

The 12 and 12

24 Hours a Day

The inability to make decisions when problems come along can be devastating.

This tension can be present even if we are not aware of it,

except that we know we are stressed.

Have you ever had difficulty making a decision?

Has the inability to solve the problem affected you?

How?

What about procrastination, do you struggle with this?

It is said that procrastination is the result of habitual inability to make decisions.

What about making the decision to address the drink problem?

Did you have a difficult time making the decision to get help?

When did you first think that you had a drinking problem?

When did you actually come into the program?

Did the stress level increase between the time you thought you had a problem and when you actually came into the fellowship?

Did you drink to alleviate the stress level?

What about making a decision to do the steps?

Did you procrastinate?

If so, how did that work?

After you made the decision to do the steps, how did that feel?

What causes indecision?

  1. Fear of failure - your thoughts?

  2. Refusal to accept reality - your thoughts?

  3. Lack of faith - your thoughts?

  4. Pride and stubbornness - your thoughts?

We are all about the solution.

what steps?

what prayers?

what slogans?

How has a sponsor helped?

We Have Calls!

Alex From Austin

Use the slogan:  Do the next right thing.

You don’t have to do everything at once, just a decision to do the next right thing.

Making decisions lead to happiness, the key to happiness.

Happiness is not pleasure.

Pleasure only occurs during the moment.

Taking a nap brings happiness during the moment, not so much afterward.

Happiness lasts beyond the moment.

I rarely look forward to working out.

But after I make the next right thing and decide to go to the gym.

I feel great after and for the rest of the day.

Happiness lasts beyond the moment of the workout.

It is the result of making right decisions.

Big Book References

p. 86

In thinking about our day we may face indecision. We may not be able to determine which course to take. Here we ask God for inspiration, an intuitive thought or a decision. We relax and take it easy. We don't struggle. We are often surprised how the right answers come after we have tried this for a while.

Doctor’s Opinion

the psychopaths who are emotionally unstable. We are all familiar with this type. They are always "going on the wagon for keeps." They are over-remorseful and make many resolutions, but never a decision.

p. 64

 

Though our decision was a vital and crucial step, it could have little permanent effect unless at once followed by a strenuous effort to face, and to be rid of, the things in ourselves which had been blocking us. Our liquor was but a symptom. So we had to get down to causes and conditions.
