Fitting Just For Today on my 1 year anniversary


Just For Today
December 30, 2015

Action and Prayer

Page 380

"...growth is not the result of wishing but of action and prayer."

Basic Text, p.37

Sometimes it seems as if our recovery is growing much too slowly. We struggle with the steps; we wrestle with the same problems; we labor under the same uncomfortable feelings day after day. We wish that recovery would move a little faster so we could find some comfort!

Wishing doesn't work in recovery; this isn't a program of magic. If wishes cured addiction, we all would have been well long ago! What does give us relief in recovery is action and prayer.

Narcotics Anonymous has worked for so many addicts because it is a carefully designed program of action and prayer. The actions we undertake in each of the steps bring more and more recovery to each area of our lives. And prayer keeps us connected to our Higher Power. Together, action and prayer keep us well-grounded in recovery.

Just for Today: My recovery is too precious to just wish about it. Today is a good day for action and prayer.

Congratulations, my friend. Stay in the moment, no past, no future, no worries. Just here and now. Now is good, now is clean.

Blessings to your wife for sticking it out with you.

Peace to you and your family, and have an even better 2016 :)

Congratulations on your one year, on November 3rd of this year I celebrated my 10 years. By far the toughest was the 1st and I spent almost that entire time in treatment. I have a life I could have never imagined before I got sober. Good luck and just remember one day at a time. As cliche as it sounds, that simple saying has gotten me through many dark days.

Picked up my 18 month key tag and medallion a couple weeks ago. Sights set on 2 years in December, one day at a time.

Keep up the good work. A lot of us could learn a thing or two from your journey.
