1) Faith instead of despair.
2) Courage instead of fear.
3) Hope instead of desperation.
4) Peace of mind instead of confusion.
5) Real friendships instead of loneliness.
6) Self-respect instead of self-contempt.
7) Self-confidence instead of helplessness.
8) A clean conscience instead of a sense of guilt.
9) The respect of others instead of their pity and contempt.
10) A clean pattern of living instead of a hopeless existence.
11) The love and understanding of our families instead of their doubts and fears.
12) The freedom of a happy life instead of the bondage of an alcoholic obsession.
