KEEP IT SIMPLE #essentialsofrecovery



The secret of success is constancy of purpose.

~ Benjamin Disraeli ~

In Twelve Step meetings, we don’t talk about counseling, treatment centers, or non-program reading. Many of us have been helped in these ways, but we shouldn’t con-fuse them with Twelve Step programs.

We must keep our Twelve Step programs pure, no matter what is in style among counselors or at treatment centers, or what the latest books say. Certainly, we should use these sources if they help us, but not in our program meetings. There, we must stick to the basics that have helped addicts recover all over the world for many years. Steps, traditions, meetings, sponsorship—these things work, no matter what is in style.

Prayer for the Day

Higher Power, let me be there to help an addict in need, by sharing my Twelve Step program.

Action for the Day

I will help out today by being a sponsor or by calling a new group member, just to say hello.
