Hour To Hour – Book – Quote
Are we remembering the so-called ‘good times’ right now? How nice a ‘high’ would be? We use this hour to REALLY think about what got us to this fight for sobriety. It wasn’t because we were having a lot of fun!
Help me to think a drink and drug all the way through, not just the high but the hell it leads to.
I Am Not Alone
Today, I know that, with God’s help, I can do anything I need to do. When I feel alone or shaken up, I can ask for help within myself and know that it is there. Each of us is ultimately alone. Each of us has to learn our own lessons; that is, what we are here to do. We can’t learn anyone else’s lessons for them, and learning our own is difficult enough. To plow through my own psyche and face the insecurity and wounds that are there is all that I can handle. To try to live other people’s lives for them is to separate myself from God because my first access to God is through and within me.

Time for Joy – Book – Quote
I have a quiet place within me where I can go rest today.
I have a quiet place within me where I can go that offers peace, comfort and healing. It is as close as this moment, as close as a breath.
This place is mine whenever I want it.

I realized I had a body which can’t tolerate alcohol, which is OK. except that I had a mind that can’t leave it alone. I’d always said that I could take it or leave it alone – I couldn’t do either. – Doug D.
