Just For Today...

I just want to say that recovery is possible, I have been clean and sober for more than five years now and I can say that, at least for today, I don't need any drug, I used illegal drugs most of my life, but I don't do it anymopre, Thank GOD. :)

Congratulations Venturachavez. Your message gives hope to the rest of us addicts, sober ones and those still suffering. We in SAA also use the AA 'Just for Today' cards. I find them really helpful. Please share what worked for you, so others may follow your path!

JUST FOR TODAY
Just for today I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do something for 12 hours that would appal me if I felt I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

JUST FOR TODAY
Just for today I will be happy. Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will adjust myself to what is, and not try to adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my luck as it comes, and fit myself to it.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will strengthen my mind.
I will study I will learn something useful.
I will not be a mental loafer.
I will read something that requires effort, thought and concentration.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will exercise my soul in three ways, I will do someone a good turn, and NOT get found out. If anybody knows of it, it will not count. I will do at least two things I dont want to do just for exercise
I will not show anyone my feelings are hurt, they may be hurt, but today I will not show it.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will be agreeable, I will look as well as I can, dress becomingly, talk low, act courteously, criticise not one bit, not find fault with anything, and not try to improve or regulate anybody except myself.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will have a program. I may not follow it exactly, but I will have it. I will save myself from two pests, hurry and indecision.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will have a quiet half hour all by myself and relax. During this half hour sometime, I will try and get a better perspective of my life.

JUST FOR TODAY
I will be unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful, and to believe that as I give to the world, so the world will give to me.

Congratulations on such a great thing! I too am sober now for 12 plus years now and have to say that it is possible! It still is an obstacle to this day though but just for today!!!

I just celebrated 4 years off meth on Sept 1. Just for today!<br />

For anyone out there who is reading this thinking it is impossible, think again.<br />
We have walked through the fire and dreamed the impossible dream!<br />

People really do break free.<br />
<br />
You can too!<br />

Just for today.
