If you’re an alcoholic, then you’re probably used to counting your days. You may even have a system for it. But today, try something different. Instead of counting days, try counting blessings.
Today, write down five things you’re grateful for. It could be anything from your family and friends to the sun shining in the sky.
Just take a few minutes to reflect on all the good in your life and see how it changes your day. You may be surprised at how much better you feel when you focus on the positive instead of the negative.
Try it out and see for yourself!

Above all, take it one day at a time.AS BILL SEES IT, p. 11
I know that one day at a time is the only way I can stay sober, but why?
I am not kidding myself because if staying away from drinking for good was going to be an all-or-nothing type thing then surely now would have been as good of a time as any.
But knowing what we do about how easy it becomes after a while when you’ve done long stretches without alcohol in your system – and being able to go back again before too many people notice or care.
Whether they see us coming out with bottles under our arms-, maybe tomorrow will still feel like another wasted opportunity even though today has gone well enough so far!
It may seem difficult to stay away from alcohol for life, but it is possible.
By focusing on the long-term goal of never drinking again as long as you live and breaking that into manageable chunks by staying sober for one day at a time, you will be able to get closer to your ultimate objective with less stress.
