Rickicism No. 8
Some of us arrive at our Program and soon develop a fired-up frame of mind, determined to do well, but expecting miracles overnight. OA Longtimers know that it is probably not going to happen quite that way. Logic will tell you that it took some very poor self management of effort, resources and time to get ourselves to the point where we desperately needed the Program, having already exhausted all the fast fixes out there with which we had been bombarded on a daily basis, with ultimately depressingly negative results.
