It’s a new day, and for many of us that means a fresh start. Today is a new opportunity to get it right, to do things differently. For alcoholics, that can be especially challenging.
We’re constantly faced with the prospect of relapse, of giving in to our addiction again. But we can’t let that discourage us.
Today is a new day, and we can make it count. Let’s resolve to stay sober today and every day hereafter. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. So let’s get started!

As I am immersed in A.A., the days pass with me talking to God every single moment of them.
It’s a labor that never ends and through it all, he guides my thoughts as well words-I ask him often for help watching over both so they may be true reflections on ourselves or anything else we’re doing at any given time; let us focus what aspirations remain–to grow spiritually by asking guidance but also just making an effort not boast too much when things go right!
In this labor of continuous participation in the Fellowship, I have numerous opportunities to speak.
So I frequently ask God to help me watch over my thoughts and my words, that they may be the true and proper reflections of our program; to focus my aspirations once again to seek His guidance; to help me be truly kind and loving, helpful and healing, yet always filled with humility, and free from any trace of arrogance.
