(28) 12 July 2012 Big Book Step Study Workshop
From the start of There Is A Solution on page 17 through to line six on page 18:
‘It ungulfs all whose lives touch the sufferer’s.’
Q1: Recovery is spiritual, physical and emotional and the spiritual part of the programme is thinking of myself last and turning to God to be of use in God’s world.
Put in action plans for the physical, emotional and the spiritual solutions.
Page 60: ‘…make clear three pertinent ideas:
a) That we were alcoholic and could not manage our own lives.
b) That probably no human power could have relieved our alcoholism.
c) That God could and would if He were sought.
This is the solution living a, b, c. knowing it, accepting it and writing about it.
look up: annihilation
Q2. What is being annihilated that is worthwhile in your life?
Write an action plan for how you want to change what is being annihilated in our life.
It (our illness) engulfs all those lives touch the sufferer’s.
Q3. Whose life did you engulf when you were active? And now in recovery whose life is being negatively engulfed by your recovery?
Q4. What does ‘spiritually fit’ look to you today?
