  1. Recovering our Serenity

    September 22, 2016 by Kayce L.

    There are many ways to recover our serenity. We can go to a meeting, phone our sponsor, meet another recovering addict/alcoholic for lunch, or try to carry the message to a newcomer. We can pray. We can take a moment to ask ourselves what simple things we haven’t been doing. When our attitudes head downhill, we need to take a moment and remember gratitude.

  2. Wake to a new Reality in Recovery

    Recovery awakens us from the nightmare of self-centeredness, strife, and insecurity that lies at the core of our disease. We wake up to a new reality: All that is worth having can be kept only by giving it away.

    Our God helps us as we help others. We should seek help in giving away the love of our Higher Power has given to us, knowing that is the way to keep it.

  3. Surrendering to Feelings Sober

    Our feelings of anger, disappointment or pain are some of the most difficult to face in recovery. We can get frightened and hurt all over again. Surrendering to these feelings, feel them, and let go of them. We can begin sharing these hurt feelings with others.I was a prisoner to a lot of anger and hostility towards certain people. I began opening up to my sponsor and my fellowship and i was helped with letting go and allowing God to start and heal all those resentments.

  4. A Fresh Start 

    September 4, 2016 by Kayce L.

    When I started this journey of recovery, I was overwhelmed by my feelings of resentment, anger, grief and fear. If I wanted to get and stay sober, I had to be prepared to get angry, cry and grieve to accept all of the feelings that I had been suppressing. With a fresh start and my program, I can easily do these things today. One Day at a Time. Start fresh, be open, be willing, and be honest.
