Keep It Simple #essentialsofrecovery

Go often to the house of your friend: for weeds soon choke up the unused path.

–Scandinavian proverb.

Our program has two parts: the Steps, and the fellowship. Both keep us sober. We can’t stay sober if we go it alone. We need to work the Steps. We also need people–the help of our friends daily

Recovery is about relationships. We get new friends. We get involved. We give. We get. In times of need, we may not want to ask our new friends for help. Maybe we don’t want to “burden them.”

“Maybe we’re afraid to ask for help.” Well, go ahead. Make that call. Ask your new friend to spend time with you. You deserve and need it. They deserve it; they need it.

Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, help me to get help from my friends as if my life depends on it.

Action for the Day: Today, I’ll see or call two program friends and let them know how I’m doing.
