Sobriety-Prayer is an affirmation for living sober.
Sobriety-Prayer grounds personal addiction recovery.
Our Sobriety-Prayer deserves a tailor-made spirituality that enables us to live sober in the world while not being cast in the world’s mold.
For our sobriety, living sober, we need a spirituality that serves as a catalyst for abstinence, vitality, growth and recovery. A spirituality which becomes part of our addiction recovery tools.
We want a spirituality which supports our commitment to sobriety, simply living sober. A personal spirituality which can handle the crises and challenges of addiction cravings, compulsive urges, and blind impulses.
We have all seen enough of the accidents caused by drunk driving, whether from alcohol, drugs or simply lack of sleep. We need alcoholism self help for living sober, driving sane.
Our prayers for addictions recovery requires a path for us to travel to where we already are. That is a tall order.
Our Sobriety-Prayer as tailor-made spirituality can offer us spiritual discipline for renewal and courage for our pilgrimage of addictions recovery.
Our personal addictions recovery needs the continuing strength of a fresh sober awareness. Even if outside the confines of structured doctrines.
It is possible to pray without being religious, and to be religious and not pray. As the Buddhist aphorism reminds us: Cut your own wood and carry your own water.
You can develop your own Spirituality Practice.

Sobriety-Prayer is living sober spirituality.
We are learning to change which is crucial for the development of a strong recovery. This challenge includes the daily realization of abstinence in our “living sober” lives. We recognize that authentic spirituality ultimately depends not on what we do, or what we have, but on attitude. In our Sobriety-Prayer it is the attitude of our heart that counts.
Prayer is food for the soul, a key of our spiritual practice. Our Sobriety-Prayer reaffirms we may have to take our destiny into our own hands.
Sobriety living sober is abstinence in practice.
Our Praying is most effective when it is an affirmation of personal intent. Something we intend to actually accomplish.
“Our addiction induced pleasures or feelings of self-esteem are shadows divorced from the underlying human activities that are the essence of human flourishing.
We want to feel good about ourselves but only as a result of actually doing and being good.” Leon Kags
Saint Francis of Assisi One day in winter, Saint Francis of Assisi was practicing mindful walking and he came upon an almond tree. He stopped before the tree, breathed, and prayed.
“Almond tree, tell me about God.”
And then, quite naturally the almond tree blossomed into flower, even in the biting cold of winter.
The eye with which we see God, is the same eye with which God sees us.
Our Sobriety-Prayer models the prayer of St. Francis.
Make me an instrument of your peace: Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; And where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, let me bring hope; Where there is darkness, light; And where there is sadness, joy.
Oh Master, grant that I may never seek;So much to be consoled as to console; To be understood, as to understand; To be loved as to love.
Make me an instrument of your peace: It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; In giving that we receive;And in dying we return to our origin.
Our Sobriety-Prayer should help us to be aware of what is happening ---in our body, in our mind, and in our personal environment.
Our Sobriety-Prayer offers us the gift of fearlessness. With courage we stay grounded in the present moment and affirm our living sober.
We can handle the momentary cravings, the senseless urges, and the non-conscious impulses.
Here is How to Stop Alcohol Abuse.
You can develop your own Sobriety Plan.
The mind has 40,000 to 50,000 thoughts a day.When 1000 to 2000 of those daily thoughts are directed to an objective, that goal has a great chance of becoming a reality.
“I choose to be sober today.”
“I do not drink ‘alcohol’ anytime, for any reason.”
“I do this day-by-day, moment-by-moment.” I try to extend this awareness to all my commitments. Especially to prevent my being involved in an accident caused by my drunk driving.”
May I meet those I can, And honestly release those I can not.With help, prayer to recover, and meditation, I will be able to recognize those which I can change, and those I can’t.
I recognize the inevitable give and take, the motion and rest, the fluid and ever-changing world. And what it offers me each day.
I am aware that sobriety is more than just being sober. More than avoiding alcohol and drunk driving.
Sobriety. It is enough.
My personal spirituality has helped me lay aside most of my unrealistic expectations, and self sabotage.
Alcohol intoxication has become an obsolete relationship I have let go. I am living a life of sobriety.
I no longer need the crutch of intoxication to negotiate each day’s encounters and surprises.
My life, my living sober, is more a proactive adventure rather than something which just happens to me. Being proactive helps prevent addictive urges and aggressive impulses.
Sobriety-Prayer helps keep me sober. Personal affirmations reaffirm my recovery’s Spirituality. But, there is a lesson I sometimes forget:
A Lesson We Forget.
It seems to be a lesson we learn; Again and again:Prayer is more being someone; Than doing something.
Prayer is more the way we are; Than what we have to offer.If we are not kind to ourselves; And others, if we are not sensitive; To everything that is,
If we do not care enough; About the people near us; And all the people of the world; To make sacrifices for them.
It will be hard for us to pray. There are no gimmicks to prayer.
It is most important to us; Just to be ourselves. That is just fine. We don’t want to be someone else; Or do something else.
But, most important, I know:
There will never be another now, I’ll make the most of today.
There will never be another me,I’ll make the most of myself.
I affirm with M. Scott Peck that:Self Discipline is Self Care.
