Just For Today Oct 15 - Choices
"We did not choose to become addicts."
Basic Text, p. 3
When we were growing up, all of us had dreams. Every child has heard a relative or neighbor ask, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Even if some of us didn't have elaborate dreams of success, most of us dreamed of work, families, and a future of dignity and respect. But no one asked, "Do you want to be a drug addict when you grow up?"
We didn't choose to become addicts, and we cannot choose to stop being addicts. We have the disease of addiction. We are not responsible for having it, but we are responsible for our recovery. Having learned that we are sick people and that there is a way of recovery, we can move away from blaming circumstances-or ourselves-and into living the solution. We didn't choose addiction, but we can choose recovery.
Just for Today: I choose recovery.

Thank you thank you! I've been very caught up as of late and appreciate you posting the meditations, someones gotta do it this is an awesome reading.. I never thought I'd be an addict growing up, in fact I despised drugs and what I saw them do to my family. It feels good to have a choice today! Another day of recovery it will be.
