A DAY AT A TIME #essentialsofrecovery

Reflection for the Day

Any number of addicted people are bedeviled by the dire conviction that if they ever go near the Program—whether by attending meetings or talking one-to-one with a member—they’ll be pressured to conform to some particular brand of faith or religion. They don’t realize that faith is never an imperative for member-ship in the Program; that freedom from addiction can be achieved with an easily acceptable minimum of it; and that our concepts of a Higher Power and God—as we understand him—afford everyone a nearly unlimited choice of spiritual belief and action. Am I receiving strength by sharing with newcomers?

Today I Pray

May I never frighten newcomers or keep away those who are considering coming to the Program by imposing on them my particular, personal ideas about a Higher Power. May each discover his or her own spiritual identity. May all find within themselves a link with some great universal Being or Spirit whose power is greater than theirs individually. May I grow, both in tolerance and in spirituality, every day.

Today I Will Remember

I will reach, not preach.
