A Day At A Time

Reflection For The Day

When I have only myself to talk to, the conversation gets sort of one-sided.  Trying to talk myself out of a drink or a pill or a “small wager” or just one chocolate eclair is sort of like trying self-hypnosis.  It simply doesn’t work;  most of the time, it’s about as effective as trying to talk myself out of a case of diarrhea.  When my heart is heavy and my resistance low, I can always find some comfort in sharing with a true and understanding friend in The Program.  Do I know who my friends are?

Today I Pray

May I be convinced that, as part of God’s master plan, we were put here to help each other.  May I be as open about asking for help as I am ready to give it, no matter how long I have been in The Program.  May the experiences of countless others be enough to prove to me that “talking myself out of it” seldom works, that the mutual holstering that comes from sharing with a friend usually does.

Today I Will Remember

When I ask for help, I am Helping.
