Blaming Others For Our Problems – Recovered 740

Among the many things newcomers need to consider
is how to best manage their sobriety.

This has to do with attitude. You can have the right intention and still be defeated by old attitudes. This can be referred to as stinking thinking.

One of the biggest barriers to overcome
is blaming others for our problems.
The truth is that blame is not healthy ? but accepting responsibility is.

For me, blaming others has never worked. Instead of blame, what I found works for me is to take responsibility for my actions,
take action to correct the situation,
and accept the consequences
and try to do all of this with dignity.

Let’s talk first thoughts.
When you were notified about the topic this week, what was your first thought?
Where do you want to start the discussion?

Did you blame others for you problems when you were new?

What did that look like?
What happened? How, give examples?

Why is Blame bad?
Can blame be a good thing?

Spiritual axiom
It is a spiritual axiom that every time we are disturbed, no matter what the cause, there is something wrong with us. If somebody hurts us and we are sore, we are in the wrong also. But are there no exceptions to this rule? What about “justifiable” anger? If somebody cheats us, aren’t we entitled to be mad? Can’t we be properly angry with self-righteous folk? For us of A.A. these are dangerous exceptions. We have found that justified anger ought to be left to those better qualified to handle it.

What about justified blame, how do you handle a situation when someone else is clearly in the wrong?

What about self-blame, what is this?
Do you fall into this?

Why do you fall into blaming, what shortcoming is in effect?
How do we identify when we are falling into blamming?
What is the solution for you?
How can acceptance help?
How do you accept responsibility?

We have calls
