an apology? Have we kept something to ourselves which 

should be discussed with another person at once? Were

of what we…

Recovery Quotes / 12 Steps To Recovery

For Today –

 

And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing, or situation—some fact of my life

Recovery Quotes

For Today –

 

Do not be discouraged. No one among us has been able to maintain

anything like perfect adherence to these principles. We are not saints.

Recovery Quotes / 12 Steps To Recovery

For Today –

 

On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead.

Recovery Quotes / 12 Steps To Recovery

For Today --

 

If you are as seriously alcoholic as we were, we believe there is 

no middle-of-the-road solution. We were in a position where life 

was becoming impossible, and if we had passed into the region 

from which there is no return through human aid, we had but 

two alternatives: One was to go on to the bitter end, blotting out 

the consciousness of our intolerable situation as best we could; 

and the other, to…

softer way. But we could not. With all the earnestness at our 

command, we beg of you to be fearless and thorough from the 

very start. Some of us have tried to hold on to our old ideas and 

the result was nil until…
