“Leaving aside the drink question, they tell why living was so unsatisfactory.” (Big Book, Page 51) With or without alcohol, life was difficult. We were always swimming upstream. Recovery gives us the opportunity to jump into the stream of life and move with the current. Many of our struggles today center on potential collisions with those who are still swimming upstream. If we are spiritually fit, we will do our best to assist them. If we are spiritually unfit, we will ignore them, push them aside, or speak poorly of them.
Today, I will ask God for the power to help those who are still swimming upstream. I will be an agent for my Higher Power and help to pull along those who still struggling with their vision.
