Daily Reflections


. . . . we tried to carry this message to alcoholics,
and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

I find that carrying the message of recovery to other
alcoholics is easy because it helps me to stay sober
and it provides me with a sense of well-being about
my own recovery. The hard part is practicing these
principles in all my affairs. It is important that I
share the benefits I receive from A.A., especially at
home. Doesn’t my family deserve the same patience,
tolerance and understanding I so readily give to the
alcoholic? When reviewing my day I try to ask, “Did I
have a chance to be a friend today and miss it?” ” Did
I have a chance to rise above a nasty situation and
avoid it?” “Did I have a chance to say ‘I’m sorry,’
and refuse to?” Just as I ask God for help with my
alcoholism each day, I ask for help in extending my
recovery to include all situations and all people!
