Author Michael Graubart ∗ Three Simple Rules Michael Graubart An Invitation Rules Theyre everywhere From morning until night, from cradle to grave, our lives are bound by rules Rules from our parents Rules from school Rules from our siblings Rules from the government Rules from our religion Its amazing that any of us can move a muscle given the sheer number of rules, regulations, laws, statues, ordinances, and cultural cues to which we must adhere Im not saying that rules are entirely unnecessary Imagine driving somewhere without speed limits and stop signs Actually, that just sounds like Boston, where I live Seriously, we couldnt have a society without rules The problem is that we spend almost all of our days following rules and placing rules on people around us Rules about what we can do What we can say Where we can go What we can spend Sometimes it seems like thats all life has becomewe dont have room for anything else As a result, we can forget the very essence of life Spending every day making sure were following every rule obscures the really important questions Why are we here What are we supposed to be doing with our short time on Earth How do we live fulfilling lives How can we harness the gift of recovery to become the best versions of ourselves In order to reach our highest potential as human beings, we need to stop thinking, at least for a moment, about the thousands of rules laid out for us each waking moment If we truly want to have enjoyable, fruitful, spiritual, meaningful, and sober lives, there are just three key rules by which we need to live Three simple rules Those three simple rules come from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, and go like this Trust God Clean house Help others Thats it The key to a happy, useful life in six short words Now, just because these rules are simple, that doesnt mean theyre easy Mastery of the rules takes a lifetime And just offering my interpretation of them will take up this whole book In particular, you may already be apprehensive about that first rule Especially that word God Maybe because the word God implies too many rules Seriously, for many people, just the mention of God conjures up feelings of shame and judgment for not being able to live up to countless laws, commandments, and customs How can such a loaded concept be part of a set of simple rules Well get back to that question But, with the purpose of making this book useful for everyone, Im going to make a couple small changes to the way well talk about the rules here First, lets change that G word to another term One that youve likely heard before if youve ever been to a Twelve Step meeting Higher Power Then, Im going to rearrange the order of the rules slightly So, now, they look like this Clean house Help others Trust your Higher Power Eight words instead of six But still The simplest possible recipe for a happy, useful life Well tackle cleaning house and helping others first, then get back to the big one Now, its important to point out here that Im not trying to change tradition or claim that I know a better way to write these rules Quite the opposite, Im happy to call myself an old timer in recovery The rules Trust God Clean house Help others, in that order, with those words, is what has saved my life and has saved the lives of countless other people in the program The point is, I want as many people as possibleincluding you, dear readerto be able to know what thats like I also recognize and respect that understanding and internalizing what it means to trust a Higher Power is often a lifelong process Doing the work of cleaning house and helping others is often needed to get there So, if youd like to tackle these in the traditional order, go ahead and read chapter three first Thats your callyou bought the book, after all Maybe youre old school about recovery, the way I am Otherwise, well start our journey through these rules from a place that might be approachable for people coming into recovery today So, where in the Big Book can we find these rules There are two pieces to that puzzle The first can be found in the foreword called The Doctors Opinion Back in 1939, the authors of the Big Book realized that the readership may be suspicious of a new and barely proven approach to recovering from alcoholism So, they thought hearing from a doctor with a history of treating alcoholic and addicted patients would help legitimize the whole thing Also, the initial primary audience for the book was doctors The Big Books authors figured that doctors would read the book and then prescribe it for their alcoholic patients The doctor they chose was Dr William Silkworth In Silkworths foreword, he says once a psychic change has occurred, the very same person who seemed doomed, who had so many problems he despaired of ever solving them, suddenly finds himself easily able to control his desire for alcohol the only effort necessary being that required to follow a few simple rules 1 Sounds like a good deal, right He doesnt name those rules, however For the text of the three rules themselves, we need to turn to chapter 7, Working with Others There, trust God, clean house, and help others are all introduced as central tenets of the program that should be explained to newcomers who are just starting out 2 Who is the genius who first pulled all of these concepts together into the rules as we know them Not sure But it wasnt me So, what do I, and this book, have to offer you This book is an invitation to a better understanding of the three simple rules that come to us from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous But, importantly, its an invitation to simplify your life and your recovery These rules, by the way, are useful to everyone, not just recovering alcoholics or addicts So if youre a civilian or normie as we like to call non addicts reading this, welcome This is an invitation for you, too But Michael, you may be asking, dont Twelve Step programs have, well, twelve rules Kind of There are, indeed, Twelve Steps In recovery, of course, taking the Twelve Steps is the foundation of everything importantpreventing relapse, understanding ourselves, developing spirituality, and learning to live comfortably in our own skin In a perfect world, newcomers would get into the Steps at their very first meeting Unfortunately, today, newcomers sometimes have no exposure to the Steps, or avoid the Steps, or sometimes are even told not to start with the Steps for a period of time Then, when they finally do get to them, the Steps can seem confusing and overwhelming So the question becomes, how can you make a start in recovery before you really get to the Steps Or, how can you simplify your experience taking the Steps by focusing on the big picture of recovery Thats where the three simple rules come in And thats where this book comes in The amazing thing is, the core concepts of those Twelve Steps can be found inyou guessed itthe three simple rules The first three Steps basically boil down to Trust your Higher Power Steps Four through Eleven are really about cleaning house And Step Twelve is about helping others Am I suggesting that you can ignore the full Twelve Steps No Please do still work a program to the best of your ability But, if you find yourself reasonably confused or overwhelmed by all of those Steps, if youre stuck on a particularly difficult Step, or if you seem to be losing focus of what the program is really about, the three simple rules are there for you Ill admit, there is some irony in quoting rules from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous As any recovering alcoholic or addict will tell you, recovery is not about following rules or placing rules on peopleits about offering and accepting suggestions When you give someone a rule, you are saying, in effect, I have the power I know better By contrast, when you are offering a suggestion, you are saying, Try this if you want It worked for me It might just work for you So it wouldnt make much sense for me, as a recovering alcoholic, to go around telling everyone else which rules to follow Instead, I want to offer my own thoughts and suggestions about what it means to live by those three simple rules and how they have helped my recovery and my life How applying these rules, even before you completely understand them, changes you from the inside out When you apply these rules to your life, your relationships get better, starting with your relationship with yourself Your external life gets better, because you become a much attractive person to hire, to marry, to be friends with, to have kids with, and so on Your internal world changes radically, because you become the spiritual being you were always meant to be And all you have to do is follow three simple rules Ready for the journey of a lifetime Then lets begin Rule 1 Clean House excerpt Okay, but which house Were not talking so much about the physical home, house, or apartment in which we live Well get to that soon enough Right now, were talking about another home we have created for ourselves, or perhaps, have neglected for too long That home is spiritual, and it is always with us everywhere we go Most of us are moving into the future carrying a lot of our past that no longer serves us Ideas, attitudes, beliefs, prejudices, behaviors, habits, relationships, things What patterns and behaviors did you cling to when you were drinking and using How many of those are still a part of your life, your spiritual house, right now No matter what time of year it might be as you read this, its time for an internal spring cleaning Its time to clean house When the Big Book authors speak of cleaning house, theyre talking primarily about inventorying our attitudes, behavioral habits, thinking habits, and actions or inactions If you arent familiar with the Steps, the basic idea is that alcoholism and other addictions are physical, mental, and you guessed it spiritual The physical part is the compulsion to drink or use The brain disease This combines with a mental obsession, in which we think about our drug of choicewhether its alcohol, cocaine, food, sex, spending, or whateverthan anything else Our addictive substances or behaviors ultimately become important to us than life itself So comes the spiritual part The purpose of the Twelve Steps is to create a reawakening of the spirit inside the alcoholic or addict In other words, our spirit is still within us, but it has been buried under gallons of alcohol, ounces of cocaine, unavailing sexual relationships, and other forms of addictive or compulsive behavior We have replaced our quest for meaning and fulfillment with a quest for of those unhealthy things that have given us temporary relief or enjoyment We need to get that spiritual quest back on track The first three Steps are about understanding and accepting the need for spiritual help Well explore exactly what that means and how to do it when we get to rule number three Then comes Step Four, which is the place where members of Twelve Step programs figuratively clean house, and thats what well focus on first Now, the Twelve Steps are complicated enough The language of them isnt exactly easy reading they cannot be interpreted without written guidance from literature and lore from fellow sober alcoholics and addicts If youve ever seen the Marx Brothers movie A Day at the Races, where Chico is trying to tout Groucho onto a horse, and sells him all kinds of horseracing books, thats what the Steps feel like to many Way overcomplicated So complicated, in fact, that they scare people off from working the program and getting sober When Bill Wilson, one of the cofounders of Alcoholics Anonymous, wrote the Big Book, he said the Fourth Step was a place where we list our grosser handicaps In other words, anything thats big and stands in the way of our spirits reawakening should be written down and put on the list Somehow, over time, the simplicity of the Fourth Step was lost In the early days of Alcoholics Anonymous, the sponsor or mentor figure did the writing, because the newcomers hand was still too shaky to hold a pen The entire Fourth Step process only took about half an hour Today, the Fourth Step has turned into huge lists, essays, turn arounds, and all sorts of other complications never intended by the founders of the program It can take years, and all too often, it never gets done The newcomer is robbed of the opportunity to have the spiritual awakening promised in Step Twelve, and therefore doesnt get the insurance policy against relapse that the program guarantees If you overcomplicate the process of getting well, you are going to make recovery all but impossible for large numbers of people So maybe the program needs to clean house a little bit, too, and get back to the simplicity of the original manner of taking the Fourth Step Heres the proof Somebody asked one of the companies that produces the chips or coins that are given out in meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous and other Twelve Step programs, How many newcomer chips do you sell, and how many two year chips do you sell The answer We sell twenty newcomer chips for every two year chip we sell 3 In other words, maybe one in twenty newcomers to various Twelve Step programs actually makes recovery stick This is compared with 50 to 75 percent of newcomers who got sober back when the program started 4 One key reason why weve overcomplicated the process of cleaning house Who on earth would want to spend months rehashing and writing about all of the sordid, miserable, embarrassing, shameful things weve done The Big Book tells us, We absolutely insist on enjoying life Its hard to do that when your head is stuck in the past, reliving all those nightmare scenarios That was never what the founders of the program intended Instead, cleaning house, at least on ones first time through the Steps, was meant to be that simple list of things we did that werent really making us better people The Twelve Steps, as Bill wrote them, were too complicated even for AAs other cofounder, Dr Bob Smith Dr Bob, in Akron, published his own literaturenot a book, but a pamphlet that laid out not twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, but just four Dr Bob really wanted things kept simple So perhaps we can use our simple rule as a guidepost to understand how to move forward in this area of our lives Clean house When recovering alcoholics and addicts do a Fourth Step, they learn that they have certain defects of character My sponsor, the late and beloved Milton D., never liked that expression Who wants to think that he or she has a defective character Instead, he preferred to replace the phrase defects of character with something simplerbad habits If your character is defective, you feel doomed There is nothing you can do to turn the situation around But if you have some bad habits, you could probably get to work on eliminating or at least reducing them So what exactly are the bad habits The list isnt a state secret Fear, which keeps you living small, feeling miserable, and unable to try new things like getting a job or going a date, for example Resentment, which means re sentimentto feel something again, usually in a negative way Procrastination, which means laziness Greed and envy, which is endemic to alcoholics and addicts because when you drink too much and dont work enough, other people end up with all the things that you wanted Arrogance, which is a mask for fear Self hatred Guilt Shame You get the point Do you want to keep carrying these negative emotions and behaviors around with you, cluttering up your spiritual house I didnt think so The reason AA and other Twelve Step programs work is because we have in common than what divides usand we focus on what we have in common How do people typically sum each other up in modern society By race, religion, age, appearance, quality of clothing, personal grooming, job title, possessions Twelve Step programs arent to be confused with Heaven These external identifiers are certainly noticed, but they dont predominate In many ways, they dont matter What matters is sincerity Are you really trying to get and stay sober or abstinent When you share, as the expression goes, Are you carrying the message to the meeting and the mess to your sponsor Do you even have a sponsor The newcomer with thirty days who is sitting toward the front of the meeting instead of the back row the slipper seats , who is actively listening in the meeting instead of playing with her phone, who is getting phone numbers and making calls to members of the group, gets ten times the respect as the old timer with thirty years, no sponsor, and a bad attitude By avoiding the social labels that we use to pigeonhole people, Twelve Step recovery focuses on the commonalities addicts and alcoholics share These are the nature of addiction, the character defects or bad habits we discussed earlier, the life problems we tend to cause for ourselves, and the solutions we have found to make our lives great As I tell my sponsees, if you end up with a character defect or bad habit that Ive never seen before, well name a Step after you So how do you clean house How do you stop being the kind of person who thinks and acts in such a self destructive way It takes a written inventoryagain, not of every bad thing youve ever done, but simply of the grosser handicaps In the Big Book, Bill uses the analogy of the commercial inventory, wherein a store shuts its doors for the day, lists whats on its shelves, and gets rid of unsalable goods Those unsalable goods are usually the same list of traits and behaviors that I offered a moment ago Take a look back at that list and ask yourself which of those traits applies to you If youre like most alcoholics or addicts, the honest answer is, all of them How are we different from our civilian counterparts Non alcoholics and non addicts typically dont try to drink or use their problems away They either ignore them, live with them, orthink of itsolve them Maybe we could learn something from that One of the things I cant stand in meetings not the only one, but thats not what this book is about is the guy who sits there and says, All you have to do in AA is change everything Ha, ha, ha Hey, if I couldve changed anything, I would never have come to these meetings The reality is that change is hard I once heard it takes about two years for people to change in a meaningful wayand only if they are willing to put in the effort required to change People dont change overnight, even if they want to Patterns of thought and action are so groovednot indelibly, but certainly deeplyin our brains that overcoming them takes time, effort, and above all, help The good news is that change is possible One of the most useful things I ever heard in a meeting came when an individual said, You dont have to change If you take the Steps, you will be changed by the process Wow The one thing I cant do by myselfchangeIll be able to do if I take the Steps Seriously Okay, Im in Rule 2 Help Others excerpt Everyone can help someone else Everyone Sometimes newcomers in Twelve Step programs think they have nothing to offer, and that their job, in the gruff words of certain old timers, is to fill a seat I get it If youre just starting out, youre not in a good place It doesnt seem like theres anything positive going on in your own life, so how in the world are you supposed to do anything good for someone else Well, thats the point of having a rule about this If you follow the rule, youll help others Then once you start helping others, youll realize you have plenty to give them And, get this, it will help you too Let me explain There is a story I loveA newcomer in a meeting turns to the person sitting next to him and says, How much time do you have The guys says, Ten years So the newcomer turns to the person on his other side and says, How much time do you have That guy says, Ten days Amazed, the newcomer says, How did you do it In other words, newcomers can often relate easily to other newcomers than they can to people who have been sober for a long time Thats because ten years sober may just seem unattainable to the newcomer Nobody can stop drinking or using for that long Of course, we can and do So if you are reading this book and you have just joined a Twelve Step program it might feel like you have an endless amount of time and work ahead of you But keep in mind that even as we speak, youve already tackled Secret Step Zero, which reads, Im tired of this s And there are plenty of people who havent even gotten that far Those pre newcomers, if you will, are just making the decision to find a meeting And when they get there, they will be looking at the person with ten years and saying, I cannot relate And then they will be looking at you So we all can help others, and while the person with decades of sobriety may have all kinds of brilliant advice, chances are the person with a few weeks or months sober may be even useful to the new newcomer than the old timer can be We can help people in the most mundane of ways Can you read a meeting book Then show the person who is even newer than you how to find the next meeting We can also help people in extraordinary ways, as when we are volunteering in a hospital, donating blood, or doing a million other things To paraphrase an ancient fable, God divided people into individuals so we might help each other But we first need to discuss what I mean by help There are basically two types of help, which we can call helpful help and unhelpful help Lets start by talking about unhelpful help You may be tempted to help someone by trying to change them to fit your needs We addicts and alcoholics especially love to try to help our spouse, our partner, our boyfriend, or our girlfriend in this way, because if theyll just change, everyone would be better off, right No, thats not okay Oh, you can help your significant other in other ways You can drive them to work or to distraction, or to drink You can do the dishes You can run that errand But helping in a broad sense, as in helping them to become a better person, or at least a different person Fuggedaboudit Unhelpful help Stop it Most of us are guilty of trying to help people with whom we are emotionally involved, not out of a spirit of altruism, but out of a desire to make our own lives easier These are the if onlys of lifeif only he were considerate If only she were interested in emotional intimacy If only he would spend time with the kids And so on Then we would be happier The unfortunate reality is that we cannot help those around us develop behaviors and attitudes that we would consider conducive to our own happiness The suggestion in these situations is to practice acceptance as opposed to putting time into a futile effort to change people So why do we do it Because we think its too much trouble for us to accept others as they are We think the easier, softer way is changing them Wrong To put it simply, trying to change other people doesnt work So everything that youll read here refers to a different type of help The helpful help Not helping change our family members, girlfriends, boyfriends, spouses, or partners Instead, the rule asks us to help, in a meaningful way, our sponsees, our neighbors, our communities, our world Not make them conform to our desires and expectations, but actually be useful to them So how do we do that Milton, my late sponsor, used to say that the program of AA, in regard to other people, can be summed up with the doctors creed, First, do no harm Before you even worry about helping people, just try not to make their lives worse Milton added that an alcoholic or addict who gets through the day without hurting anybody has had a good day So the simplest way to help others is not to harm them Most alcoholics and addicts Ive met grew up in homes where parents were not parents Of course, they were parents in a biological or legal sense, but either or both, if both still lived under the same roof, were emotionally unavailable and often were just as alcoholic, angry, depressed, and self absorbed as we became Under such circumstances, its not surprising that people who grew up in these homes would A, grow up to become alcoholics and addicts, and B, find it very difficult to ask for help Let alone help others The Big Book tells us that alcoholics are selfish in the extreme Roger that You may have heard people say in meetings, Im not much, but Im all I think about So true Heres one I love if youre all wrapped up in yourself, you make a very small package So, the idea of AA and most other Twelve Step programs is to get the alcoholic or addict to stop thinking about himself or herself constantly and instead to think aboutsomeone else What does the other person need How can I be of love and service Hard questions to ask when Job One is killing pain So now comes the alcoholic, seeking recovery, and yet self absorbed to the extreme After all, our problems might have been of our own making, but we were too drunk to deal with them Or we kept getting drunk so that we wouldnt have to deal with them For example, my sponsor Milton says that before he got sober, he thought of parking tickets as annuitieshe would toss them in his glove box and wait for them to mature Those annuities matured faster than he did So by the time we get to our first meeting, not only are we banged up physically from all the abuse weve done to our bodies, but we have a huge number of problems that have to be unwound Money problems Marriage problems Family problems Legal problems Once again, the list goes on ad infinitum So what does the second simple rule come along to tell us, as a way of solving all these complicated, seemingly impossible problems We help others.Really Im supposed to help others right now youre asking Isnt the goal here to help me Yes, of course, you self obsessed addict or alcoholic Were all here to help you Everyone in your Twelve Step program is here to help you, even the people you cant stand, perhaps especially the people you cant stand Why Because most of us discover that the traits we abhor in others turn out to be the same traits we abhor in ourselves By talking this over with a sponsor, were often able to recognize that we share that behavior and then were able to do something about it So, as long as youre open to receive what your program is offering you, while you work on helping others, there will be others working on helping you Cool, right Rule 3 Trust Your Higher Power excerpt The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous teaches that alcoholism and by extension, any form of addiction is a spiritual disease This usually makes zero sense to the newcomer Spiritual My problem isnt spiritual My problem is that I got fired divorced kicked out of the house estranged from my kids went bankrupt fill in the blank Whats so spiritual about that Maybe theres some kind of connection between my drinking and or using and the fact that my life is jackedbut what do you mean, spiritual To answer that, let me tell you about another disease that also has a huge spiritual component Heart disease Back in the 1950s, Meyer Friedman and Ray Rosenman, two San Francisco cardiologists, termed the phrase type A behaviora major, controllable risk factor for heart diseaseafter they had a surprising conversation with the man who upholstered their waiting room chairs Ive never seen damaged chairs like yours anywhere, he told the doctors The only part of your chairs that are damaged are the armrests where your patients grip them so tightly The rest of the chairs are fine The doctors pondered this intriguing piece of information Before long, they realized that the tension their patients feltpeople who had either survived heart attacks or were at serious risk for having themrevealed itself in the tension filled way they went through life It wasnt just the armrests that these individuals gripped so tightly It was life itself The predominantly male patients were predominantly high powered San Francisco executives, impatient, hard driving, overworked, and numbers obsessed, with no time for anyone or anything that didnt contribute to career success In other words, heart attacks waiting to happen The prescription that the doctors offered had nothing to do with medication, because they didnt see the problem as primarily a medical one Again, they saw the problem in spiritual terms They prescribed long walks through nearby redwood forests Visits to museums Attending the symphony The term they used was restoring lost parts of their personality through the appreciation of beauty They advised slowing down and smelling the flowers, instead of obsessing over work and the incessant demand to do and in less and less time I read about this in Friedman and Rosenmans book Type A Behavior and Your Heart, which continued with a comment that I found searing Never in human history have so many people lived in such a deep spiritual void Amazingly, he was talking about life in the 1960s Today, sad to say, the comment is even applicable 5 In other words, what drove type A behavior It wasnt a lack of career success or financial reward These menit was the 1950s, mind youhad all that money could buy, all the prestige and power the world offered What they really lackedwas a meaningful spiritual life Not just check the box attendance at religious services because such was expected of them Instead, a real relationship with a Higher Power Its not as though if you believe in God youll never have a heart attack Its that if you recognize that youre living in a spiritual void, and then do something about it, perhaps youre less likely to die before your time Or, at the least, less likely to waste your life away drinking and drugging The San Francisco cardiac patients had been trying to fill a God sized hole with work, money, property, and prestige Alcoholics and addicts try to fill that same God sized hole with alcohol, money, sex, food, gambling, debting, or any of a host of activities that may provide temporary relief but fail to address the problem and, if anything, make things even worse A God sized hole A hole in the soul Indicating that at base, the problem of addiction is indeed a spiritual problem Which brings us to our third and last simple rule trust your Higher Power Before we even get to the concept of trusting, we first have to talk about what or who your Higher Power is, or how you get one if you dont have think you have one Remember that this simple rule is really about boiling down the wisdom of the first three Steps, which talk about a Power greater than ourselves and God as we understood Him In meetings today, these concepts are summed up as your Higher Power Your Higher Power, as the name suggests, can be any power greater than yourself It can be the laws of physics The program itself some people refer to their Higher Power as G.O.D.Group of Drunks Mother Earth One of the several conceptions of God from mainstream religions Your call And this is why I love AA so much Twelve Step recovery is the only spiritual entity Ive ever heard of where the individual gets to design and even name his or her own concept of Godwithout anyone else interfering or criticizing Isnt that cool Im not here to tell you what to believe I am here to explain why finding and trusting a Higher Power is one of our three essential rules for sobriety and life And to explain that you dont have to have everything figured out to reap the benefits of living by this rule If you just take the leap, trust in something, and go through the motions, youll soon realize you are living it 1
