Fr. Leo's Daily Meditation #essentialsofrecovery


“Humankind is what it believes.’’

~ Anton Chekhov ~

My miracle is that I now believe in me. I accept my addiction and do not resist or deny it. I believe I am an alcoholic, an overeater, a codependent, or an adult child of an alcoholic. My belief sets me free.

For too long, I played the game of control, blaming, and bargaining—and I lost. I now surrender to the reality of who I am. I accept my disease and make choices based on my awareness. And it is getting better.

My belief about addiction gives me insight into God and freedom. God loves me enough to give me choice, and with it comes responsibility. I am responsible for how I live with my addictions. Today I accept that responsibility.

What I believe reflects the God I believe in. I believe in You.
