24 – Hour Segments


4-26-09 hudsom sunset 042.

First, we try living in the now

just in order to stay sober–

and it works.

Once the idea has become

a part of our thinking,

we find that living life

in 24 – hour segments is an

effective and satisfying way

to handle many other matters as well.”


Living Sober, p. 7


One day at a time, one hour at a time,

one minute at a time, just long enough to pray

to a Higher Power who will give you

the courage and strength to face life on God’s terms.

Quiet the noisy mind.

Enjoy the moment, keep it simple

and even if your tail falls off, pick it up,

put it in a wheelbarrow and take it to a meeting.

Sobriety is living one day at a time.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.


ME and the Boss


And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
