What is your most helpful "sobriety quote"

One that I really like is:

The one with my signature is also one that I really like:

“What progress, you ask, have I made? I have begun to be a friend to myself.”

I was still pretty new to this site and recovery; this one stuck with me: (I believe it was Incontrol15 who said) "Today sucks, tomorrow will suck, but tomorrow will suck more if you drink today"

Some pretty awesome quotes here. I really do think these are inspiring to us all. Just a few words summed together makes a difference.

"Acknowledge the problem, live in the solution" has been a favorite of mine since day one. I'm not sure where it came from, or who said it, but it means a lot to me. Not just in my sobriety, but with everything in my life. If there is a problem, we fix it. End of story.

"Addiction is the only prison where the key to get out is on the inside".

I keep a folder full of quotes (so much gold here!) from SR and this is one of them.

Great thread, heaven !
