Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous:
Chapter 1. Bill’s Story page 2: para 2
look up: grip, maelstrom, forge, impulsivity
The inviting maelstrom of Wall Street had me in its grip. Business and financial leaders were my heroes. Out of this alloy of drink and speculation, I commenced to forge the weapon that one day would turn in its flight like a boomerang and all but cut me to ribbons.
1. When you were young what had you in its grip?
Business and financial leaders were my heroes.
Q2. Who are/were your heroes? Where do you spend your time and money? [This says who you really are.]
The drive for success was on. I’d prove to the world I was important….Many people lost money - but some became ver rich. Why not I?
Q3. Bill is seeing grandiosity. Can you relate to that?
Do you think differently now?
Q4. Impulsivity: Going against what others say is reasonable.
Keeping in mind your past history, what are the tools needed in sobriety to keep you on the road of reasonableness?
