No matter how many days in a row we do the right thing, sometimes we just can’t help but make a mistake. That doesn’t mean that we’re bad people, it just means that we’re human.
Today, don’t beat yourself up over your mistakes. Instead, use them as a learning experience and try to do better tomorrow. Just focus on one day at a time and you’ll get there eventually. Keep your chin up!

Step Six: Renewed understanding
I have made a firm decision to give up drinking alcohol. It is time for me to renew my commitment and ask God, in essence telling him “give me the strength!”
Now that we are at this last step of preparation it’s important not only what we do but also why-so I can learn from all six steps mistakes if there were any made on previous pages or now through these final words before renewal!
In the Sixth Step, I am asking my Higher Power for help. This is a big step that will change everything about me and how I live life going forward.
It’s an important time to reflect on what you want your future self to be like. What do you hope they’ll look like? How will they behave differently from who you are now?
Once these details have been established, it can become much easier to stay committed in recovery because of knowing exactly what we’re working towards!
