More on Bedevilments, the Word of the Day

Bedevilments of the Disease

This is taken from Page 52 in the Big Book.  It is a list of common bedevilments we experience as alcoholics / addicts.  The motivation is to seek “God-sufficiency” over self-sufficiency to be rid of them:

~ We were having trouble with personal relationships

~ We couldn’t control our emotional natures

~ We were a prey to misery and depression

~ We couldn’t make a living

~ We had a feeling of uselessness

~ We were full of fear

~ We were unhappy

~ We couldn’t seem to be of real help to other people
