Reflection for the Day
The longer I’m in the Program, the more important becomes the slogan “First Things First.” I used to believe that my family came first, that my home life came first, that my job came first. But I know today, in the depths of my heart, that if I can’t stay sober, I’ll have nothing. “First Things First,” to me, means that everything in my life depends on my sobriety. Am I grateful to be sober today?
Today I Pray
May my first priority, the topmost item on my list of concerns, be my sobriety—maintaining it, learning to live comfortably with it, sharing the tools by which I maintain it. When other things crowd into my life and I am caught up in the busyness of living, may I still preserve that first-of-all goal—remaining free of chemicals.
