My past is filled with poor choices, but as I have learned, my past does not determine my future. The Program has changed my life forever, and I know that now I can trust myself to make good choices, ones that benefit me and all those in my life. I’m not perfect but I am capable of making better choices now. Today I choose to be sober, today I choose to have faith, and today I know that, with God’s help, I can make better choices for me, and for those around me.

  1. It’s up to me to bless the past as a learning experience. It’s my choice to let go, so I do. I am ready, willing, and able to make courageous and mindful choices, moving forward with peace of mind and positive intentions.
    I thank God every day for the spiritual freedom with which I have been blessed.

    In treatment we worked pretty hard on expressing our anger towards ourselves for our past and someone told me,”don’t be so hard on yourself, God has already forgiven you”.
    Now that sounded pretty strange to me!
    Now I know that a loving God cannot hold or carry a grudge.
    By the way I’m still in”treatment”.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted twelve stepper.

  2. Ahhh, yes…The Past.
    Home of ancient wounds, fearsome battles, enslaving resentment and deeply held fear and abject terror.
    It holds me enchained and enslaved, blocking me from the everpresent joy and love of which we are surrounded…
    I can drink to remove its grip, temporarily, but I remember where that led…
    Or I can release its energy, in prayer, and come into His sunshine and be what I was created to be.
    Today I have the choice, thank you for restoring it.
    Grateful for the Gift

  3. I kept reworking the past in my mind trying to build a better past for nyself. Now I work for a better today and let the past and the future take care of themselves.
