Aug. 10, 2014 – Today’s Gift from Hazelden


serenity prayer 8Sunday, Aug. 10, 2014

Today’s thought from Hazelden is:

Changing

The old saying is true: You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. It’s the same with addiction and recovery. People can take away our drugs and put us in treatment, but no one can make us clean and sober.

When it hurts enough, when we’re scared enough, when we’re sick and tired enough, when we’ve lost enough, then we’ll begin to change. But we have to want to change. It’s the key.

What am I willing to do to recover?

Higher Power, help me to want what I need; to want what is best for me.
