Just Say No.— Nancy Reagan

Keep It Simple
October 8, 2010
Just Say No.— Nancy Reagan

We addicts were great at saying no. Our spouse asked us to help around the house and we said no and went drinking. Friends tried to care, but we said, “No, mind your own business!” Our parents or our kids begged us to stop drinking, but we said no.

We were also ask to say yes. We always said yes when asked if we wanted to have a drink or get high. Addiction really mixed us up. When we said no, we should have said yes. And when we said yes we should have said no.

In recovery, we do things better. We say yes when others ask for help. We say yes when somebody wants to give us love. We say  no to alcohol and other drugs. We finally answer yes and no the right way—the right way and at the right time for us.

Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, help me to always say yes to You, even when I’m tired or angry.

Action for the Day:  In today’s inventory, I’ll ask myself if there are any ways I’m still saying no to my program and Higher Power.
