Daily reading for January 19 from “As If I Was In Your Office…”
Ask, Listen, Do As You Are Told - “It’s a miracle for the alcoholic to ask for direction, to let people know what’s going on, to seek direction and to seek advice!” Fr. Paul – September 3, 2008.
We never used to like to ask and we never wanted people to ask us how we felt. We did not want them to know how we felt or what was going on in our lives with our fears, hates and resentments. We lived in the past with all our hates, resentments and self-pity, and we lived in the future in regard to all our fears. We did not want people to know about our self-pity. What a difference in our life and the lives of others when we ask questions, follow direction, and can be at peace with it. What a change!
My commitment today is to ask, listen, and do as I am told so that I do not spiritually hurt anyone or myself any longer.

Daily reading for January 18 from “As If I Was In Your Office…”
Submit and Surrender - “To submit and surrender to God’s love and other people’s love for us.” Fr. Paul – March 12, 2008.
As alcoholics we hate to submit to God’s or other’s will because of our egos, our hates and resentments, self-righteousness, and our independence. We cannot stand on our own two feet. We rebelled against it. It is difficult for the alcoholic to accept the love of God, to submit and surrender to it. We do not believe it, so we push it and others away. We have our walls up and do not trust them. We want to run our own lives because we think that we know better. We take away our parents’ freedom to love and care for us, and God’s freedom as a Father who cares for us, loves us, and gives us the strength, understanding and courage that we all need. As alcoholics we could not submit and surrender to God’s love. This is what we need more than anything else because of our disease of alcoholism.
My commitment today is to submit and surrender to the love of God through others.

Decisions - “We set out to create a world through myself all by myself.” Don Russell – April 4, 2008.
We did it our way! We did not believe in doing it your way and we could not switch gears. Doing it our own way created a world that was very self-centered, self-willed, and focused on us. Everything was all about us and we could not see anyone else’s point of view. If anyone challenged us, he or she became our enemy. So we became very selfish, self-centered, narcissistic, and we call it alcoholic. When we live in a world designed by ourselves how can we share it with other people? We sold ourselves down the river, giving up our full potential in our careers, in love and fulfillment.
So how do we change? We have to make a decision to turn our lives over to a program where we can learn to ask, listen, and do as we are told. We must do the work to turn it around and our lives will change by sharing, confiding, and consulting as needed.
My commitment today is to make a decision to get out of self and get into others.

Featured Testimonial

Not only did the people at Brentwood change my son, but they changed me as a mother. It allowed me to develop an amazing relationship with my son. When we found Brentwood, I was as much in need of help as my son was. I could not have done this journey without help. Without Brentwood’s help!

By coming to Family Support meetings with an open heart, I found a support system like no others. Brentwood staff have continued to work with my son in his Recovery while I worked my own program. This has allowed us to celebrate and grow in recovery as a family. I will be forever grateful to Brentwood!
