Keep It Simple #essentialsofrecovery

But the alcoholic . . . will be absolutely unable to stop drinking on the basis of self-knowledge.
–Alcoholics Anonymous

Our program says three things are more important than knowing ourselves: (1) admitting we have no control over our addiction, (2) believing in a Higher Power, and (3) turning our lives over to the care of that Higher Power. knowing ourselves makes our lives better in recovery. But it does not give us sobriety. Sobriety starts with surrender to our Higher Power. We now know we need faith and strength we get from a Higher Power. We also need the support of others in our program.

Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, thanks you for my sobriety today. Teach me what I need to know about myself to do Your will today.

Action for the Day: Today, I’ll talk with my sponsor about the change in my spirit that keeps me sober.
