A Day at a Time

Reflection for the Day

What causes slips? What happens to a person who apparently seems to understand and live the way of The Program, yet decides to go out again? What can I do to keep this from happening to me? Is there any consistency among those who slip, any common denominators that seem to apply? We can each draw our own conclusions, but we learn in The Program that certain inactions will all but guarantee an eventual slip. 

When a person who has slipped is fortunate enough to return to The Program, do I listen carefully to what he or she says about the slip? 

Today I Pray

May my Higher Power – if I listen to Him – show me if I am setting myself up to get high again. May I glean from the experiences of others that the reasons for such a lapse of resolve or such an accident will most often stem from what I have not done rather than from what I have done. May I “keep coming back” to meetings. 

Today I Will Remember

Keep coming back.
