    #207 Vigilance (Sept. 24th) - Greg B. (Eugene OR)

    #207 Vigilance (Sept. 24th) - Greg B. (Eugene OR)

    Join us to listen as Greg B. from Eugene, OR shares his experience around today's Daily Reflection for September 24th entitled "Vigilance". 

    VIGILANCE
    We have seen the truth demonstrated again and again: "Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic" Commencing to drink after a period of sobriety, we are in a short time as bad as ever. If we are planning to stop drinking, there must be no reservation of any kind, nor any lurking notion that someday we will be immune to alcohol
    ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 33
    Today I am an alcoholic. Tomorrow will be no different. My alcoholism lives within me now and forever. I must never forget what I am. Alcohol will surely kill me if I fail to recognize and acknowledge my disease on a daily basis. I am not playing a game in which a loss is a temporary setback. I am dealing with my disease, for which there is no cure, only daily acceptance and vigilance.

    #206 A Limitless Lode (Sept. 26th) - Maureen Stoner (Eugene, OR)

    #206 A Limitless Lode (Sept. 26th) - Maureen Stoner (Eugene, OR)

    Join us as Maureen Stoner, from Eugene Oregon, shares her experience, strength and hope around today's Daily Reflection, A Limitless Lode. 

    A "LIMITLESS LODE"
    Like a gaunt prospector, belt drawn in over the last ounce of food, our pick struck gold. Joy at our release from a lifetime of frustration knew no bounds. Father feels he has struck something better than gold. For a time he may try to hug the new treasure to himself. He may not see at once that he has barely scratched a limitless lode which will pay dividends only if he mines it for the rest of his life and insists on giving away the entire product.
    — ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, pp. 128-29
    When I talk with a newcomer to A.A., my past looks me straight in the face. I see the pain in those hopeful eyes, I extend my hand, and then the miracle happens: I become healed. My problems vanish as I reach out to this trembling soul.

    #205 H.P. As Guide (Sept. 20th) - Chuck H. (Philadelphia, PA)

    #205 H.P. As Guide (Sept. 20th) - Chuck H. (Philadelphia, PA)

    Join us as we listen to Chuck H. from Philadelphia, PA share his experience, strength and hope around the concept of a Higher Power as Guide for today's Daily Reflection.

    H.P. AS GUIDE
    See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great events will come to pass for you and countless others. This is the Great Fact for us.
    ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 164
    Having a right relationship with God seemed to be an impossible order. My chaotic past had left me filled with guilt and remorse and I wondered how this "God business" could work. A.A. told me that I must turn my will and my life over to the care of God, as I understand Him. With nowhere else to turn, I went down on my knees and cried, "God, I can't do this. Please help me!" It was when I admitted my powerlessness that a glimmer of light began to touch my soul, and then a willingness emerged to let God control my life. With Him as my guide, great events began to happen, and I found the beginning of sobriety.

    #204 Acceptance (Sept. 19th) - Heather B. (Cincinatti, OH)

    #204 Acceptance (Sept. 19th) - Heather B. (Cincinatti, OH)

    Join us as Heather B., from Cincinatti, OH, shares her story and experience around today's Daily Reflection entitled, Acceptance.

    ACCEPTANCE
    We admitted we couldn't lick alcohol with our own remaining resources, and so we accepted the further fact that dependence upon a Higher Power (if only our A.A. group) could do this hitherto impossible job. The moment we were able to accept these facts fully, our release from the alcohol compulsion had begun.
    — AS BILL SEES IT, p. 109
    Freedom came to me only with my acceptance that I could turn my will and my life over to the care of my Higher Power, whom I call God. Serenity seeped into the chaos of my life when I accepted that what I was going through was life, and that God would help me through my difficulties – and much more, as well. Since then He has helped me through all of my difficulties! When I accept situations as they are, not as I wish them to be, then I can begin to grow and have serenity and peace of mind.

    #203 Freedom From Fear (Sept. 17th) - Kirk (Alexandria, VA)

    #203 Freedom From Fear (Sept. 17th) - Kirk (Alexandria, VA)

    Join us as Kirk from Alexandria, VA shares powerfully on the concept of Freedom From Fear for today's Daily Reflection. 

    FREEDOM FROM FEAR
    When, with God's help, we calmly accepted our lot, then we found we could live at peace with ourselves and show others who still suffered the same fears that they could get over them, too. We found that freedom from fear was more important than freedom from want.
    TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 122
    Material values ruled my life for many years during my active alcoholism. I believed that all of my possessions would make me happy, yet I still felt bankrupt after I obtained them. When I first came into A.A., I found out about a new way of living. As a result of learning to trust others, I began to believe in a power greater than myself. Having faith freed me from the bondage of self. As material gains were replaced by the gifts of the spirit, my life became manageable. I then chose to share my experiences with other alcoholics.

    #202 A New Life (Sept. 15th) - Denise K. (Jacksonville, FL)

    Join us as Denise K. from Jacksonville, FL tells her story of experience, strength and hope and how she's experiencing A New Life in recovery. 

    A NEW LIFE
    Yes, there is a substitute and it is vastly more than that. It is a fellowship in Alcoholics Anonymous. . . . Life will mean something at last
    ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 152
    Life is better without alcohol. A.A. and the presence of a Higher Power keeps me sober, but the grace of God does even better; it brings service into my life. Contact with the A.A. program teaches me a new and greater understanding of what Alcoholics Anonymous is and what it does, but most importantly, it helps to show me who I am: an alcoholic who needs the constant experience of the Alcoholics Anonymous program so that I may live a life given to me by my Higher Power.
