KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery


You can make more friends in two months by becoming
interested in other people than you can in two years
of trying to get other people interested in you.

~ Dale Carnegie 

We wanted friends, but our addiction wanted all our attention. We had no time to be close to others.

Well, stand aside, addiction! The program has taught us that others are important. Our purpose is to help others. People have become what’s important to us.

Now we listen to others. We help them do what they want to do, not what we want them to do. We help people instead of use them. Friendship is now a way of life. And another promise of the program becomes a part of us.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, help me to know that I’m here to help others, not just myself. Through others, I find myself.

Today’s Action

Today I’ll help someone in the way he or she wants to be helped.
