A standard list of solutions


A standard list of solutions, in no particular order

Read the Big Book (which you should always carry on you) looking for solutions: then apply them
Read the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions (which you should always carry on you) looking for solutions: then apply them
Read other spiritual literature (which you should always carry on you) looking for solutions: then apply them
Read the Just For Today Card (which you should always carry on you) looking for solutions: then apply them
Read any other AA literature looking for solutions: then apply them
Read any other Twelve-Step programme literature looking for solutions: then apply them

Practise Step Three
Practise Step Seven
Practise Step Ten
Practise Step Eleven
Practise Step Twelve

Consult your notebook containing all solutions and tools you have ever been given in recovery.
If you don't have such a notebook, start one now, and keep it with you permanently.

Pay particular attention in the Big Book to the last eight pages of Bill's Story, We Agnostics, then the AA programme set out between pages 59 and 88, and the principles contained in the later chapters: seven, eight, nine, and eleven.
Most importantly, pay attention to:
Pages 84 to 88, which contain the daily programme
Page 67, which contains the solution to resentment
Page 68, which contains the solution to fear
Pages 69 to 70, which contain the solution to guilt, shame, or bad behaviour

Pray
Meditate
Turn everything over to God
Help others
Call a newcomer
Make yourself useful
Reject all negative thinking
