Ratings and Reviews
Must have for any AA person
I used to have the small softcover but would give it away to people and never see them again and have to buy a new one.
This app version is fantastic. I have used it for 22 years and the best 10 dollar investment I’ve made. It has three components. A thought for the day, a meditation for the day and a prayer for the day. In the thought portion is an ending contemplative question which is often the topic of an AA meeting. The nice thing is that I can open this app anytime and read the reading in the morning and start my day right. It mentions god but not reason to freak out. You can use your definition of God, even the term good will orderly direction. The meditations are usually excellent and I often send them to my non AA friends
Spiritual not religious
Whoever wrote the review on the one reading in this book which talks about atheism completely missed the point. They do not care what your higher power is as long as it works for you. The fact is if you are an addict or alcoholic like me you can not recover on your own. Hence needing a power greater than yourself. This could be your AA/NA group or whatever you want to help point your life in the right direction. Again this book absolutely does not push a certain religion. It focuses on repairing the spiritual disconnect we face with this disease. Where our actions and behaviors don’t line up with our morals and values.
Reading this book every morning changed my life
In early recover and well in, I experienced depression and anxiety. I now know many do. Reading this book every morning changes the chemistry in my brain, I am convinced. My great-grandsponser, my grandsponser, my sponser, my self, all my sponsees, have read and read this book daily. The positivity and perspective has forever changed my life and the life of millions of AA’s over the years...one day at a time. Bonus is the slow drip,drip,drip of explanation of AA life and living. I need it every day. Thanks for this book.
