Talking the 12 days of Christmas

On the first day of Christmas my sponsor gave to me... a list of sober activities.....

Line up extra AA/NA/Al-Anon/etc. activities for the holiday season. Arrange to take newcomers to meetings, answer the phones at a clubhouse, speak, help with the dishes, or visit the alcoholic ward at a hospital.

On the second day of Christmas my sponsor gave to me...

two newcomers full of doubt and anxiety.....

Be a host to recovering friends, especially newcomers. If you don’t have a place where you can throw a formal party, take one person to a diner and spring for coffee.

On the third day of Christmas my sponsor gave to me...

Three phone numbers to protect my serenity…

Keep your recovery telephone list with you all the time. If a drinking urge or panic comes --- postpone everything else until you’ve called a recovery friend.

On the fourth day of Christmas my sponsor gave to me...

a ticket to our sober revelry…

Find out about special holiday parties, meetings, or other celebrations given by groups in your area, and go. If you are timid, take someone newer than you are.

On the fifth day of Christmas my sponsor gave to me...

five ways to skip the job party…

Skip any drinking occasion you are nervous about. Remember how clever you were at excuses when drinking? Now put the talent to good use. No office party is as important as saving your life.

On the sixth day of Christmas my sponsor gave to me...

six bags of Christmas candy…

If you have to go to a drinking party, and can’t take a friend with you, keep some candy handy.

On the seventh day of Christmas my sponsor gave to me...

a party-escape tip and apology…

Don’t think you have to stay late. Plan in advance an “important date” you have to keep. After all, what is more important than keeping your recovery???

On the eighth day of Christmas my sponsor said to me...

“Go to worship and try praying on your knees…”

Go to church. Any church. Make a gratitude list. Pray. Meditate. …..’nuff said.

On the ninth day of Christmas my sponsor said to me...

“Read a book, take a walk, get a hobby…”

Don’t sit around brooding. Catch up on those books, museums, walks, and letters. What about that project you have had sitting in the basement for these past few months. Dust it off and do it!

On the tenth day of Christmas my sponsor said to me...

“Keep it simple, easy does it, work it daily…”

Don’t start getting all worked up about those holiday temptations. Remember --- “one day at a time.”

On the eleventh day of Christmas my sponsor said to me...

“Relax, enjoy, pass on sobriety…”

Enjoy the true beauty of the holiday love and joy. Maybe you cannot give material gifts --- but this year, you can give love.

“Help another with their recovery…”

“Having had a . . .” Has anything in your recovery made sense, helped, enriched, challenged, eased, blessed, or enlightened you? Great! Now, pass it on!
