Acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some person, place, thing or situation, some fact of my life, unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity until I can accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this moment. - From the Big Book

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012. I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

Resentment- Resentment is very toxic for us alcoholics. It is a #1 cause why some people drink again. NOTHING is worth losing our sobriety. We are worth it!

Quiet time - we need time to meditate, to be still, and listen to our Higher Power; we need that quiet time to pray and ask God to help us in our daily walk of sobriety.

Powerlessness - Until I could admit I was powerless over alcohol, nothing could change in my life.
When I gave this to God, because I could not stand it anymore, my whole life changed. I have been set free from the bondage of alcoholism.

Open-mindedness - we have to have an open mind and be willing to give our alcohol obsession to God. I could not stop drinking until I totally turned it over to God. He has done for me what I could not do myself. It's by God's Grace that I am sober today.

Interests - Before I came into recovery, my main interest was to have as much as possible revolve around alcohol. It was an obsession. Now I have a wide horizon of interests. Many are simple joys of life. I take such a joy of nature. I thank my Higher Power I'm no longer wrapped in thoughts of alcohol.

Ask for help when needed. People really don't mind being asked. And...give help, too, of course.

Gratitude - I am grateful for my daily journey of sobriety, that my Higher Power has given me. We must always remember that we need to do footwork in our daily journey. Sobriety requires work; it tells us in Chapter 5 - How It Works. It's worth every effort!
