Each day is a unique opportunity to start fresh! I can start my day over at anytime by recommitting to sobriety. I accept that I cannot change past failures caused by my addiction, but I don't have to recreate the past if I stay sober. I completed many 24 hours, but the most important is TODAY. Each day I renew the vows of AA's first step, I recognize my helplessness toward Alcohol and have decided not to drink, only for today. Today is where We get the power to change! We are together.
Today, I will not let my failures discourage me. Rather, I will turn them into success by admitting that I cannot (and don't have to try any longer to) stay sober all by myself. This admission of solitary powerlessness is the gateway to getting help. Help succeeds where pure self reliance fails.
