Head full of bees
People in AA are sometimes full of doubt, negativity, suspicion, paranoia, all whirling around in a kaleidoscope of doom. What's the answer? Well, if you don't like the results you've been getting from your life, distrust the person whose ideas you have been concentrating hardest on, namely your own. Fire yourself as your chief advisor! How do you implement this? Construct a day's worth of worthy activities that God would have you carry out, and get on with it. Whenever your mind starts thinking about unhelpful things, pull it back to the task at hand. In those free moments when the task at hand does not require attention, memorise a longish prayer and say it over and over again. There is no need to indulge bad thinking.
