It can be tough to stay sober sometimes. Especially when temptations are all around you. But if you’re an alcoholic, then you know that it’s important to keep your sobriety as your top priority.
That’s why I’m a big fan of Daily Reflections. It’s a great way to keep yourself accountable and on track. If you’re struggling today, make sure to take a look at today’s reflection!

Until we had talked with complete candor of our conflicts, and had listened to someone else do the same thing, we still didn’t belong.TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 57
After four years in A.A., I was able to discover the freedom from buried emotions that had caused me so much pain, and with extra counseling, my burdens were released.
I felt a complete sense of belonging as well peace for myself spiritually; awareness came about not only how these feelings are connected but also what they mean when you’re trying to live life on your own terms rather than others’.
The Fifth Step gave new meaning too – this power isn’t just something we should praise or appreciate- IT’S REAL!!
I am so grateful for the gift of sobriety and a life without pain.
My advice to anyone who is struggling with addiction, depression, or other debilitating emotions that are driving you into self-destructive behaviors, is to find a 12 step program like Alcoholics Anonymous.
You will be amazed at how quickly your burdens can lift from your shoulders once you start attending meetings regularly and following the steps in order.
