Promptly forgive ourselves! Promptly tell a friend, DA group member, co-worker, spouse that you are now trying to live one day, one hour at a time and are depending on the Higher Power to give you the courage to risk thinking hopeful thoughts which have the power to lead yourself back into the community, the family and among friends. Develop a gratitude attitude and thank God for today! This day is all we have. Get involved in your own healing. Start to take on the attitude that if other people can make it then so can I. It’s true – you can make it if you follow the program.
“Human beings are never quite alike, so each of us making an inventory, will need to determine what our individual character defects are. Having found the shoes that fit, we ought to step into them and walk with new confidence that we are at last on the right track.”
