I started a Web Site in 1999 when I came back into the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous. Tripod decided to block me a few years ago , so I stopped writing, posting. SO I decided to take the posts I had there and put them here. Plus new ones I found on the net and shares of my own. Take what you need and pass on the rest! Blessings ds♥

Resentment causes no harm to the subject of it’s obsession, but it’s like a mental cancer to the person under its control. It’s such a threat to happiness and peace of mind that the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous mentions it in at least five places. Here’s what it has to say:
“Never forget that resentment is a deadly hazard to an alcoholic.”
BB p.117, To Wives
“Continue to watch for selfishness, dishonesty, resentment, and fear.”
BB p.84, Into Action
“It is plain that a life which includes deep resentment leads only to futility and unhappiness.”
BB p.66, How It Works
“Resentment is the ‘number one’ offender. It destroys more alcoholics than anything else. From it stem all forms of spiritual disease, for we have been not only mentally and physically ill, we have been spiritually sick.”
BB p.64, How It Works
‘The greatest enemies of us alcoholics are resentment, jealousy, envy, frustration, and fear.”
BB p.145, To Employers

Starting back with Step 6.... I reailzed that if I didn't have a good connection with a higher power that I would have trouble with Step 6, 7, 8, & 9 which I did the first time I did the Step work. I didn't really get Step 3 so my 4th & 5th were half heartily, so when I got to Step 6 the second time I redid my steps, I understood I had to Pray again for more willingness. That's all I had to do and look at the defects I had which I found in my 4th step. By now I basically knew which defects were very troublesome . I KNEW if I continued with those defects I WAS going to drink , as I almost did, as i have mentioned many times in here. I found I had to have a total willingness to let them go in Step7. I had to ask my Higher Power to take them from me.... meaning I had to LET THEM GO.
