If you settle for your wildest dreams, you will be selling yourself short.
Many of us have heard of the Ninth Step Promises from page 83-84 of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. There are, however, additional promises in the Big Book.
The following is a list ofapproximately 150 promises that I compiled from the first edition of the Big Book. Some of the promises are directly associated with completion of a step. Some of the promises are inferred from the experiences of the first 100 men and women who recovered from alcoholism.
In either case, I have found it helpful to remember there are promises throughout the Big Book, if we just look for them.
As I compiled these myself, I am more than open to feedback or suggestions. ENJOY!
