It’s hard to believe that we are already in the month of September. The time has flown by, and it feels like just yesterday we were ringing in the New Year. For many of us, September signifies a fresh start, a new beginning.
It’s a time to set goals and make plans for the upcoming months. As Alcoholics Anonymous members, we can use this time to reflection and review our program of recovery.
Today is September 15, so take a few minutes to journal about your progress over the past year. What worked for you? What didn’t work? What would you like to change or improve?
Let go of what doesn’t serve you anymore and focus on what will help you stay sober moving forward. You can do this!
Daily Reflections September 15
Yes, there is a substitute and it is vastly more than that. It is a fellowship in Alcoholics Anonymous. . . . Life will mean something at last. ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 152
I never thought my life would be this good without alcohol.
When the grace of God brings service into your world, you know that it’s worth living for- even if there are times when things get tough and don’t seem like they’ll ever change or get better again!
Contact with Alcoholics Anonymous has helped show me who I really am: an alcoholic needing constant experience so as not to lose sight on what is given by My Higher Power.
I have been sober for over two decades. My life is better without alcohol, and the A.A. program has helped me to find a Higher Power who can help keep my sobriety lasting through all of these years.
In Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, I hear others share their stories and learn how they rely on God’s grace to stay clean and sober just as much as they depend upon themselves or the 12 Step Program itself.
It is in this safe space that we are able to become more honest with ourselves about our problems and weaknesses so that we might be able to overcome them–together–for good!
