The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous: The Doctor’s Opinion
Q1. The WE is about fellowship and transparency with God at the top of the triangle.
Do I have accountability? Is God in charge of my recovery, my relationships with my sponsors, accountability group? Do I have transparency? Do I put God in the middle of all this?
Q2. In the time since writing about your plan for recovery have you done any tweaking of it? Have you tightened it up a little?
‘To Whom It May Concern.’ Next to this write your name.
Next to ‘I’ write: Dr Silkworth
‘In the course of his (write Bill W) third treatment he acquired certain ideas concerning a possible means of recovery.
Q3. Have you acquired certain ideas:
that you are physically addicted to alcohol? (or whatever you are addicted to), that
no power on earth, no program, no food plan, no sponsor, can bring you recovery?
And that God could and would relieve the physical, emotional and spiritual addiction if you were willing to let God be in charge of your recovery?
Q4. In your step one meetings are you sharing your experience strength and hope?
How you work the steps, the strength you found in working a physical emotional and spiritual programme? Are you sharing the miracle of recovery?
Or do you dump your garbage and it is always about your problems?
Write this down: Recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of body and mind.
Q5. When was the last time you thought about drinking/eating foods that you know will kill you?
Q6. Do you work your program so that to pray, plan, prepare protect is part of your normal every day. Or is it drudgery?
Write down: Recovered is not cured.
Question to write on in the workshop:
Have you ever felt hopeless in your recovery journey?
