Commitment: If your energy is as boundless as your ambition, total commitment may be a way of life you should seriously consider. –Joyce Brothers | More…

Commitment: Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, ‘This is the real me,’ and when you have found that attitude, follow it. — William James | More…


This recovery program taught me “one day at a time”
It taught me to put one foot in front of the other

That for one day I could do what I couldn’t do, or even fathom doing, for a lifetime.
This is how I found abstinence.

Breaking up my days, weeks, months and years into 24-hour periods allows me to live in the now. And not feel swallowed up in thinking that I have to do this for the rest of my life. One Day At A Time | More…

Success comes with commitment. We cannot maintain abstinence, or a marriage, or a profession, or anything else without being committed to it.

Genuine commitment is the attitude required of us if we are to benefit from AA. The program is not something we pick up and put down when we feel like it.

The program is not something we pick up and put down according to whim. Abstinence is not a diet that we go on and off as it pleases us.
