Daily Check-in thread: Saturday November 15th 2014


Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change

Feel free to use whatever system works for you.

Yours in fellowship,

Today, I will be grateful for the immediate
and long-term rewards of recovery. If I am new to recovery, I will have
faith that I can achieve the long-term benefits. If I've been recovering
for a while, I will pause to reflect, and be grateful for my overall
