Gratitude today

Don't do the steps without a sponsor.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I am still absolutely amazed that I don't get drunk every night -- or any night, for that matter!

for a recovery program that teaches me how NOT to start drinking again

that so many emotional and spiritual changes seem to take place in me when I'm not watching

that my life is better than I could have ever planned it

for a life of (slowly) diminishing addictions

With gratitude, all life appears as a blessing - without gratitude, all of life is perceived as a burden.

That is a wonderful illustration of why you need a sponsor to do a 9th step. I think there are more all over the place.

My life is really good too. Sometimes I forget that.
