Daily Recovery Quotes – February 19

AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote

The alcoholic may find it hard to re-establish friendly relations with his children. Their young minds were impressionable while he was drinking. Without saying so, they may cordially hate him for what he has done to them and to their mother. The children are sometimes dominated by a pathetic hardness and cynicism. – Pg. 134 – The Family Afterward

Hour To Hour – Book – Quote

It is easier for us to blame others (parents, spouses, friends) for our addiction then it is to look at self. We must never forget that we drank that drink, snorted that coke, toked that joint, and took that fix. US. ‘They’ didn’t do it.

May I never forget that I used too many mind affecting chemicals because I have the disease of addiction! Other reasons are not causes. Everyone has problems yet not everyone suffers from addiction.

Empowering My Own Day

There are no victims, only volunteers. If there is something I don’t like in the way things are going for me, I will see what I can change. I can change the subject if someone goes on and on about things that I don’t want to talk about. I can change my routines and trade un-nourishing ones for nourishing ones, I can set boundaries with my time. My time is precious to me, it is all I have to call my very own. I won’t throw it away and then blame someone else. I have a right to protect the quiet and pleasure in my day, to do more of those things that give me pleasure and fewer of things that run me down. If I am living up to my responsibilities, that is enough.

I won’t throw my time away with both hands

– Tian Dayton PhD

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

Today I know that I am doing the best that I can and I will be gentle with myself. I will watch what comes without struggle and will accept what is and adjust myself to it, rather than wanting it to be different than it is.

The difference between God and me is that God doesn’t think he’s me. – Anon.
