When we are faced with the real conditions of our lives, the broken relationships, the screwed-up way of thinking, the sinful actions, the harm we had caused— and we realized we had no control over it, then we begin to see surrendering is the only answer. Then with the glimmer of hope given by God through other people in recovery — We began to believe that God could restore us to sanity – His reality – His truth. God’s reality is what we needed so desperately!

Positive thinking can greatly improve our mental and physical health. It gives us energy and the confidence to do the things that will make our lives better. Gratitude and positive thinking go hand in hand. In fact, it would not really be possible for people to experience much positivity if they are not happy with their life. If you feel grateful you will automatically be thinking positive.

The eleventh step ask us to meditate as a route to improving our conscious contact with God. Meditation means opening our mind and our spiritual energy to the God connection. Meditation and Prayer are powerful recovery behaviors that work.

Pain and misery were realities in our drinking and using days. Through living the program we learn that our dreams can replace our nightmares. We grow and change. We acquire the freedom of choice. We are able to give and receive love. We can share honestly about ourselves, no longer magnifying or minimizing the truth. We accept the challenges real life offers us, facing them in a mature, responsible way. We can find the support, care, and concern we need to face those realities in Fellowship and a Higher Power gives us a clean, clear window through which to view, experience, and appreciate reality as it is.
