KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery


We are healed of a suffering only be experiencing it in full.

~ Marcel Proust

We must never forget our past. We need to remember the power that our illness has over us. Why? So we can remember how our recovery began. So we can remember we’re not cured. So we can tell our stories.

We must remember how we acted. Why? So we don’t act and think like addicts. Most of us had a poor relationships with friends, family, and ourselves. We need to remember how lonely we felt. That way, we’ll make recovery grow stronger One Day at a Time.

Prayer for the Day:

Higher Power, help me always remember how my illness almost destroyed me. Help me face the pain of these memories.

Action for the Day:

I will talk about my past life with those who support my recovery. I will tell them what it is that I must remember about my past.
