Faith

"Faith without works is dead! I can pray until I’m blue in the face but unless I take action and surrender my will, I’m just uttering a bunch of words.

I must cooperate with my Higher Power and focus on NOT doing the next wrong thing as I’m not always certain what the next right thing is." - Clairey Highonhugs.com

Held To Me

"I was not wrong to begin with. And I'm not sober because I became who they wanted me to be. I am sober because, for the first time, I held to me." - N

If-Then

"You don't have to be sober to be a saint or drunk to be an ass. There is no if-then. You are who you are when you decide." - L

Process

"The process is most important in recovery not just the result. When you look back someday be able to say you did it well." - C

Responsibilities

"My recovery had to be about someone other than me. I had been so busy searching for that moment of peace and happiness that I had neglected important responsibilities and people around me." - J

An Old Friend

"You better believe there will be some resistance to recovery. For me, it felt like they were insulting an old friend of mine whom I could depend on and turn to whenever life got tough." - G

Recovery

"Your recovery is only as strong as the respect you hold for the recovery of others. And it is never more important than the person standing in front of you." - Sarge

God

"I admit the whole "God" word still bothers me. I was beaten by someone using that stick. Now I know that wasn't God." - @TwelveDrawings

Hope

"In recovery, we depend a lot on hope. We ask people to put themselves through tremendous amounts of pain for an idea of a life that does not yet exist for them. We hope they believe us." - T

Numb

"Addicts are not dumb. At our worst, we are numb. That's far more destructive than dumb." - @TwelveDrawings

Here I Am

"If I were one foot to the left or standing one foot to the right, I would not be right here, writing this. A should'a, could'a, would'a, but here I am." - N
