Change is a Constant in Alcoholics Anonymous: A Reflection on the Transitions Daily Alcoholics Anonymous Recovery Readings Podcast

We have to grow or else deteriorate. For us, the status quo can only be for Today, never for Tomorrow. Change we must.
The Transitions Daily Alcoholics Anonymous Recovery Readings Podcast is a short daily audio provided by the online Alcoholics Anonymous recovery group, Transitions Daily. This podcast is accompanied by a secret Facebook group for discussion and a daily email. Today's episode, titled 'January 08 Change,' is a compilation of recovery quotes from various resources, including Twenty-Fours A Hours A Day, A.A. Thought for the Day, Daily Reflections, Big Book Quote, Just for Today, and As Bill Sees It. The reading is delivered by Craig M from Denny Scotland.
The episode highlights the importance of change in Alcoholics Anonymous. The speaker emphasizes that change is a constant in AA, and we must grow to avoid deteriorating. For us, the status quo can only be for today, never for tomorrow. Change is a must. The speaker also notes that backsliding begins when knee bending stops. To avoid backsliding, we must admit our powerlessness over alcohol and recognize that our lives have become unmanageable. We must also be willing to raise the bottom, even if we still have our health, families, and jobs.
The episode also discusses the powerlessness of choice and the importance of spiritual tools. For most alcoholics, willpower becomes practically non-existent, and they lose the power of choice. However, they still have the choice to pick up and use the kit of spiritual tools. When they do that, their higher power relieves them of their lack of choice and keeps them sober one more day.
The benefits of a fellowship in AA are also highlighted in the episode. The speaker notes that there is a substitute for alcohol, and it is vastly more than that. It's a fellowship in Alcoholics Anonymous. In AA, you will find release from care, boredom, and worry. Your imagination will be fired, and life will mean something. At last, the most satisfactory years of your existence lie ahead as an alcoholic in AA.
Finally, the episode emphasizes the importance of faithful and trusting acceptance of God's will. The speaker notes that serenity is the result of faithful, trusting acceptance of God's will, even in the midst of difficulties. Our light afflictions, which are but for a moment, work for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. We must welcome difficulties as they test our strength and build our character.
