Each day, we face different challenges. For alcoholics, those challenges can be magnified tenfold. That’s why it’s so important to have a support system in place, and to take time for reflection each day.
This blog post is dedicated to sharing one alcoholic’s reflections from March 19. Today, I faced several challenges, but I was also able to find some moments of peace. Here’s what my day looked like…
Daily Reflections March 19
It has been well said that “almost the only scoffers at prayer are those who never tried it enough.”TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 97
I was never sure if my prayers were being answered, but I knew there had to be a reason why the program kept working for me.
With an agnostic background and no one in my family who practiced religion or spirituality, they told me prayer wasn’t very important so I didn’t do it on a daily basis until people close enough shared how much confidence this helped them gain throughout their recovery process from mental health issues.
And now after just six months of dedicated practice every single day; not only does life seem easier than before (which is already saying something!)-there’s also been undeniable progress made as well!
Whether you’re a skeptic or not, prayer can be an important part of practicing the program. I started praying daily and found it to help me become more serene and comfortable with my place in the world.
If you struggle with addiction, give this one a try! Who knows, maybe your Higher Power will listen to your prayers too.
