What step has helped you with Gratitude?

Who are your grateful for?

“Gratitude should go forward, rather than backward.  In other words, if you carry the message to still others, you will be making the best possible repayment for the help given you.” 

(As Bill Sees It - pg. 29)

24 Hours a Day

Here in the United States, the holiday called halloween is upon us.  Ghosts, witches, bats, and violence are all around us which are supposed to arouse fear.

For us alcoholics, fear is an old companion.  One that was probably dealt with early on in recovery, it just comes back to visit us occasionally.

So let’s talk about fear, and let’s start by talking what it used to be like.

Before you came into the program, where you a fearful person?

Before you came into the program, how did fear contribute to your life?

Before program, how did fear contribute bringing unintended consequences?

Did you ever have a fear of sobriety?

Do you have a fear of failure?  Explain.

What about fear of success, what is your experience?

Fear of rejection is common, have you ever experienced this?

Some are fearful of recovery because they fear a loss of identity.  Your thoughts?

Some fear recovery because of perpetual misery, did you ever have this fear?

What about economic fears?

Have you ever had fear of people?

We have phone calls

want to take calls?

But here on the Recovered Podcast, we are about the solution.

Let’s talk about the solution.

How did 4th and 5th steps help you with your fears?

How about step 9?

What about service work?

How about sponsorship?

How did other aspects of the program help you with your fears?

What slogan, what step, what tradition, what service, what prayer, etc.?

What fears are battling today?

What slogan, what step, what tradition, what service, what prayer, etc.?

All right, let’s conclude the show by talking to the most important listener, the new guy.

Talk to the new guy who is overcome with fear.

Talk to the guy who has never been to a meeting and knows he has a problem and is fearful of AA.

What would you say to this person?

What advice would you give to these people?
