Quote of the Week

"Quit with the thinking and start with the doing."


It took me a long time to learn that I can't think myself into feeling better. If I'm sitting at home depressed and I wait until I feel like going to a meeting or feel like calling someone, it means I'm going to be at home depressed a long time. Early on I learned about contrary action, and when I take it and get out of my head, I always feel better.

My sponsor showed me that in the Big Book there is a chapter called "Into Action" not one called "Into Thinking." He taught me that feelings always follow actions and that every time I take a positive action, I get positive results. The opposite is also true - if I stay in my head, I almost always feel bad or grow more depressed.

One of the best actions I've learned to take in the program is to work with or help another. The power of this action is that while helping another, I'm immediately out of thinking about myself and into being of service. And the magic of service is that while I'm helping another, I'm also helping myself as well.

Today it’s much easier for me to get out of thinking and get into doing.
