    The first sign of humility in my life was when I accepted the fact that there was a power in the universe greater than myself. That took some doing but thereafter it became easier for me to practice at least some level of humility.

    When I understand that I am flawed. My patterns of thought brought on by alcoholism need persistent and sustained effort. Today I make decisions only by testing them first. Is it kind, is it selfish, do I seek to Controll? Am I willing to do what I think god wants me to do even though it may be difficult? When Im affected by others, that don't have a program..... I remember how I acted before I had one! Compassion destroyes any judgement.

      Thanks so much for this post. I needed to read this. My sponsor wants me to practice humility and I was trying to figure out how to. She wants me to practice the 5 core spiritual concepts and apply them to my life/text her how I practiced them through out the day. Humility has always been a hard one for me to understand or do. But asking myself on a daily basis if I was selfish or self centered is a good place to start.

    I have found that to have humility one must necessarily be humiliated. I have worked so hard on suppressing my ego over my 4 months of sobriety. I figure that my over-inflated ego is a large part of my alcoholism. So far so good.

    For me practicing humility means to not think I'm better or less than someone else.

    Bill Wilson wrote in the little red book, humility is seeing things as they really are.

    When I see that I am a human being with both strengths and weaknesses I become right sized in my mind

    I realized that no matter what my ego told, me I couldn't quit drinking by myself. I was trying to hide it from God and others. When I gave it over to my higher power I could and did stop. Now I realize my ego was bravado from drinking. I feel much better knowing I really have no control over any of this! And I feel great.

    Humility for me is accepting that I am no more important than anyone else in my life and accepting that God has a plan for me and my life. All I have to do is look to him for guidance and then follow!
