Sober for 365 Days: A Refresher

Someone who has been sober for 365 days shared some lessons worth repeating. It’s worth a read. Sober for 365 Days  is like a refresher of the promises  I came to enjoy through AA.

The 12 Promises

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are halfway through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self-pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self- seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook on life will change. Fear of people and economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.

Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us – sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.(The Promises)

Georgie Bingham asked for help — and she stopped drinking. It took awhile, but she discovered what old-timers suggested to me was a handy way to put a plug in the jug: 

“I just learned not to take the first drink every day, one day at a time.”

365 days sober

 This is a lesson, a refresher, I am always glad to pass it along; plus the promises. They are always worth sharing no matter how many or few days sober we have. ( Four Thoughts)

Thanks for reading . . .
