It’s Prayer if That’s Your Intention

Any spiritual connection begins with prayer. You can use familiar prayers from your youth or repeat a positive affirmation or a favorite slogan from the program. ~ Dean, Amy E. Morning Light: A Book of Meditations to Begin Your Day (Kindle Locations 3720-3721). Hazelden Publishing. Kindle Edition.

First Things First.
Don’t Use No Matter What.
This too Shall Pass.
Live and Let Live.
Let go and let God.
Time takes time.
One day at a time.
Principles before personalities.
Is your program powered
by Will Power or Higher Power?
Cultivate an attitude of gratitude.
Misery is optional.
God doesn’t make junk.
Humility is not thinking less of yourself,
but thinking of yourself less.
Live life on life’s terms.
You can’t think your way into a new way of living…
you have to live your way into a new way of thinking.
The key to freedom is in the Steps.
Don’t pick up, ask for help,
call your sponsor, and go to meetings.
It’s a simple program for complicated people.
The newcomer is the most important person in any meeting.
Keep coming back, it works if you work it.
Learn to listen and listen to learn.
Many meetings, many chances;
few meetings, few chances;
no meetings, no chances.
Meeting makers make it.
People who don’t go to meetings
don’t hear about what happens
to people who don’t go to meetings.
To keep what you have, you have to give it away.
How does it work? It works just fine.
If you don’t want to slip, stay away from slippery places.
If you do what you always did, you’ll get what you always got.
If you sit in the barber’s chair long enough,
you’ll eventually get a haircut.
Most things can be preserved in alcohol;
dignity, however, is not one of them.
Progress, not perfection.
Resentment is like drinking poison
and expecting someone else to die.
Keep it simple.
Stick with the winners.
