Hey, Meddy! It's funny how things change in the translation. My version reads:
"The first requirement is that we be convinced that any life run on self-will can hardly be a success." (Chapter 5, p.60)

"The head of the house ought to remember . . . ."

This was fun. I didn't know we used more than the BB when we did this before. If so, you may need to give this alcoholic some remedial help (a hint emoticon). Glad you are resuming it.

You got it, Mary! It's "acceptance" of course, from "Doctor, Alcoholic, Addict"

"If, when you honestly want to, you find you cannot quit entirely, or if when drinking, you have little control over the amount you take, you are probably alcoholic. If that be the case, you may be suffering from an illness which only a spiritual experience will conquer." (Big Book, p 44)

Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God's world by mistake. Until I could accept my alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life's terms; I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what . . . (from one of the stories)

Ah....Step 11....

On awakening let us think about the 24 hours ahead. We consider our plans for the day. Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives.
