  • Another day sober by the grace of God and the power of AA.....thank you!!!
  • I will stay sober today. One of those mornings when I just didn't want to get up or go to work! Lots of work to do on my life... but can only do it when I'm sober. Step 1 - the minute I pick up a drink I'm powerless over alcohol, my life was definitely unmanageable, hopefully bit by bit I can change it.
  • Just about to make it thru day 5 and it was a painful one-remembering some things I did during my drinking that make me very ashamed. No meeting to get to but sharing here helps. I can’t take those things back but I can start from today to be a better person. I knew that drinking would take away the pain for about 10 minutes and then it would be back 10 fold. Setting my sights on day 6!
    • Well done. The good thing is that you aren't adding to those things that make you ashamed any more, you are doing something that you can be proud of.
  • Good afternoon, it's been a busy day since sunrise! Count me in for another 24. Hope everyone's day is going well!
  • Today God didn't give me more than I could handle
  • Peace be with us
  • I pledge this 24 hours to my recovery, sobriety, spirituality and God's will for my life.
  • Here's my pledge for today. Thanks for the post, Musicianthomas. I try to focus on that spark of the divine within me--centering and connecting rather than judging.
  • I’m in with my pledge.

I started a new job and new career since I got sober 141 days ago, at an assisted living facility for people with dementia.  My previous career had been in software, and I knew I wanted to do something completely different now, something where I was working with people, some kind of helping profession.  Honestly, working with the elderly hadn't been on my radar.  Far from it.  Before now, I had very limited experience with the elderly, and a vague fear about nursing homes and the like. …

  • Even though I am very stressed after learning of a family member's addictive behavior. I am now planning self care steps and will not do any using behavior. I calm even as I type these words. I am grateful for slogans. One day at a time. One minute at a time. I am grateful for all the loving, understanding people in the same boat that I have met over the years. I am grateful that I know they and my higher power are with me. Thank you every single one of you. I am grateful I can trust your presence and ease my stress and sleep. One minute at time.
  • I'm learning about myself and what I need to change. Now I need a bit of patience! Didn't get here overnight, won't change everything overnight.
  • For a clear and working mind.
  • I'm healthy and still able to carry out my daily chores. And am able to be here with my ailing father.
  • I enjoy helping others
  • I can practice kindness and compassion.
  • ....once again, when I say, "It just can't get any better than this".....it gets better than this.
  • Each day different and able to relax when needed.
  • I am taking care of business and being responsible.
  • I slept very soundly last night.
