Daily Sobriety Renewals

Daily Sobriety Renewal

Ideally you will renew your sobriety with another member face-to-face, on the telephone, or by email. However, you can always surrender to the God of your own understanding and renew your sobriety in your heart!

1. Are you willing to admit you are powerless over lust and self?

2. Do you desire sobriety and freedom from the actions and obsessions of lust and self for the next 24 hours?

3. Are you willing to do whatever is necessary to protect your sobriety for the next 24 hours, including such things as exercising rigorous honesty; prayer and meditation; reaching out and calling others; forgiving all resentments; spiritual reading; reading program literature; going to meetings; setting appropriate boundaries; and refusing all lust or other hits as toxic?

4. Do you realize that this renewal does not keep us sober, God does, but it does help us to be aware of ourselves and to be accountable to others>

5. Do you understand that this renewal is just for this 24 hours, and that tomorrow you are free to go another way and make other choices?

6. Are you willing to turn your will and your life over to the care of God (as you understand Him), the One who kept you sober yesterday and protected you from the full consequences of your lust in the past?

7. Have you done anything in the last 24 hours for which you are ashamed? Violated any boundaries?

8. Have you done anything in the last 24 hours for which you are grateful (or proud of)?

9. Are you planning anything within the next 24 hours of which you would become ashamed? Anything for which you would be grateful in the next 24 hours?
