The Miracle of AA

The obsession to drink is removed from us

From page 85 of the Big Book, Alcoholics Anonymous:

We will see that our new attitude toward liquor has been given us without any thought or effort on our part. It just comes!

That is the miracle of it:

  • We are not fighting it, neither are we avoiding temptation.
  • We feel as though we had been placed in a position of neutrality - safe and protected.
  • We have not even sworn off. Instead, the problem has been removed. It does not exist for us.
  • We are neither cocky nor are we afraid.

That is our experience. That is how we react so long as we keep in fit spiritual condition.
