A Different Basis
Perhaps there is a better way—we think so. For we are now on a different basis;
the basis of trusting and relying upon God. We trust infinite God rather than our
finite selves. We are in the world to play the role He assigns. Just to the extent
that we do as we think He would have us, and humbly rely on Him, does He
enable us to match calamity with serenity.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (How It Works) p. 68

Hello everyone. Isabella, alcoholic. For me pride does go before falling into old habits. It's not the arrogant, obvious pride, it's subtle. Simply often unconsciously... moving away from my higher power. Often letting emotions or thoughts take charge. And before I know it, peace of soul is gone and defects are present. The only place for me where I have real peace is maintaining awareness of the God's presence within. And then all is well. This is a daily moment to moment awareness. It sure does take practice and for me always will. If not for this fellowship, the 12 steps ... there'd be nothing. So grateful for the gift of sobriety and my higher power.
