Continuing to take a personal inventory means that we form a habit of looking at ourselves, our actions, attitudes, and relationships on a regular basis.

Just for today:
I will make a commitment to include a regular inventory in my new pattern of living.
Hello and God Bless You.
I am truly grateful to have made it back from a relapse. I know that many people do not make it back. May those we lost to addiction Rest In Peace.
I am starting over. This time I will be more vigilant than ever before. I have to learn how to break the chains of addiction and stop dragging myself down into that old familiar pit of destruction.
I will adopt a new habit. The habit of monitoring my attitudes and behaviors. The habit of not only taking a personal inventory daily but of actually doing something about the negative attitudes and behaviors once I recognize them. I am aware of my negatives but I do nothing to correct them and that keeps me stuck making the same mistakes over and over again.
NOTHING CHANGES IF NOTHING CHANGES!
I expressed my loneliness and how I’m scared and don’t know how to live without drugs in a meeting this morning and will continue to talk about and expose what I find when I examine myself. I will stop criticising others and myself and work on being a part of the solution, instead of always being the problem.
I have a lot of work to do but I am willing to do the work.
Peace and blessings.
