One day at a time.
That’s how we do it.
It may not seem like much, but one day at a time is the key to sobriety and living clean.
We all know that our addiction makes us want to use drugs or drink alcohol; we can’t stop thinking about it and we crave it no matter what.
But if we take care of today and focus on this moment, then tomorrow will be easier because we’ll have already accomplished something great by focusing on sober living one day at a time.
The first step is always the hardest, but once you get into your routine you’ll feel better than ever before!
Daily Reflections September 5
Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, . . .TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 83
When I think about my drinking days, so many people came to mind.
People whose lives were affected by me through anger and sarcasm, but who are now untraceable.
There’s no way for me to make amends directly with these individuals; the only thing I can do is aim indirect amends towards other living beings that cross paths with mine from time-to-time because of how kind and courteous they’re always being around others.
This helps keep everyone in a peaceful state of mind where there’s little stress or anxiety involved at all times!
The only amends I can make to those untraceable individuals, the only “changes for the better” I can offer, are indirect amends made to other people, whose paths briefly cross mine.
Courtesy and kindness, regularly practiced, help me to live in emotional balance at peace with myself.
It’s also an investment that pays off through increased mental health- which is what we all need!
