Good Advice for Recovery

Some sayings I’ve  heard in the rooms and found helpful…

The Bible says, “And it shall come to pass.” Not, “And it shall come to stay.”
Expect nothing. Blame no one. Do something.
A problem shared is a problem halved.
The most important part of enlightenment is lighten up.
God does for us what we can’t do for ourselves.
If you’re thinking about committing suicide, wait five years.
Otherwise, you will have killed the wrong person.
The only dumb question is the one not asked.
Live in the solution, not the problem.
Prayers are us calling God, intuition is when He answers.
Pain is the touchstone of growth.
When the pain is of no more value, the healing is instantaneous.
You are in the perfect relationship because it requires the one thing you are incapable of giving.
When you are able to give it, you will grow.
Ask yourself, “What would God do in this situation?”
Don’t drink, clean house and help another alcoholic.
No God. No Peace. Know God. Know Peace.
In order to forgive someone, we must first forgive ourselves.
The things I used to do that don’t work anymore usually cause me pain, either physical or emotional.
The shortest prayers are, “Thank You” and “Help”.
Difficulties are God’s errands.

About Lori Crockett

I am loving life in long-term sobriety. I want to share my thoughts and my beliefs, my inspiration and my experiences with those of you who are also living in recovery. I want to provide a forum for you, my readers, to respond and share with your comments and emails and feedback. I hope by sharing my personal thoughts and feelings here that I can connect with people and extend support, understanding and most importantly--hope. I rely on yoga, meditation, healthy eating, and exercise to enhance my own sobriety, health and quality of life and would like to share what I have learned over the years. I love reading, the beach, gardening, walking my dog, and cuddling with my cats. I love working with others through volunteer work and through service work in my recovery program.
