Just For Today


My hopes creating this Blog is to spread the word of hope to all, there is a beautiful life out here, love and peace can be found within yourself, allow me to share my Experience...Strength...and Hope

And thank to this simple program, today I am also recovering. Below is an article which I copy and paste at Nicole's Page. I don't wanna go to that, ever again.

Alcohol's Promises

I have some promises I'll make to you
If you will do what I want you to do.
The more that you consume of me
The more your losses will surely be.
Here are the promises to you I make
And I promise the promises never to break.

I promise to take your money, your home
And all you can get in the way of a loan.
I'll take your character, your reputation too
Your good name, I'll take from you.
Your friends I'll take from you one day
Your family from you I'll turn away.
I'll take your car, I'll take your wealth
I'll take your job, I'll take your health.

I'll take your watch, I'll take your chain
I'll cause you to stay out in the rain.
I'll take your credit, I'll take your bail
I'll cause to sleep in a dirty jail.
I'll cause you regret, remorse and pain
I'll cause your name to go down in shame.

I'll bring you misery, I'll bring you woe
I'll bring you trouble more than you know.
I'll take your clothes and pawn them too
The necessities of Life, I'll take from you.

I'll take from you the days, I'll take from you the years
I'll double the flow of your bitter tears.

I'll take your heart, give you one of stone
I'll cause you to walk through life alone.
I'll take away your desires to live right
Your light of day, I'll turn to night.

I'll cause you to dishonor your mother and dad
I'll take away all the pleasure you could have had.

I'll turn your love for your friends to hate
Your desire to repent will come too late.

Your road to despair for you
I'll pave I'll cause you to fill a premature grave.
I'll put you in an institution for the insane
Your normal thinking will go down the drain.

I'll cause you to murder your very best friend
I'll trouble your mind to the very end.

I'll bring you contention, I'll bring you strife
I'll finish with you by taking your life.........

Just For Today

Just for today I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle all my problems at once. I can do something for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt that I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Just for today I will be happy. This assumes to be true what Abraham Lincoln said, that "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 try to 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 somebody 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 don't want to do just for exercise. I will not show anyone that 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, keep my voice low, be courteous, criticize not one bit. I won't find fault with anything, nor try to improve or regulate anybody but 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 to 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.

The above article was taken from Minnesota Recovery Page. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Please remember that i'm

God, Grant me the Serenity

To accept the things I cannot change,

Courage to change the things I can,

and Wisdom to know the difference.

Thanks DryBlog for the above grafic.

Hi! This is a personal recovery blog. Everything I posts here are from my twisted addicted mind and/or just plain poorly written. If something around here belongs to you and you're one of those people who hates free PR, drop me a line and I'll pull it down or credit you in large bold letters with every "T" crossed and every "i" dotted with a heart - Honest! And also I have very, very few assets, so it's probably not worth your time to go the lawyer route. Thanks.
