Recovery Slogans at Recovery Life

In Recovery, and especially at meetings, we here slogans and sayings that help us on our journey to stay clean and sober. When in doubt, or if you are feeling down while in your recovery, just focus on some of these important slogans, and you will overcome the difficulties ahead. These recovery slogans have a lot of meaning behind them, and they've been a part of the 12 Step Fellowship for many years. These are just one of the tools that we use to gain strength and confidence for the path ahead. It is my hope that you can benefit from these slogans in your recovery as well. Enjoy.

First Things First
Live and Let Live
Let go and let God
Time takes time
One day at a time
Cultivate an attitude of gratitude
Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less
Live life on life's terms
You can't think your way into a new way of living...you have to live your way into a new way of thinking
GOD = Good Orderly Direction
HALT = don't get to Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired
Your worth should never depend on another persons opinion
HOW it works = Honesty, Open mindedness, and Willingness
SLIP = Sobriety Lost Its Priority
Don't pick up, ask for help, call your Sponsor, and go to meetings
It's a simple program for complicated people
Keep coming back, it works if you work it
Learn to listen and listen to learn
Many meetings, many chances; few meetings, few chances; no meetings, no chances
Meeting makers make it
People who don't go to meetings don't hear about what happens to people who don't go to meetings
To keep what you have, you have to give it away
How does it work? It works just fine
If you don't want to slip, stay away from slippery places
If you do what you always did, you'll get what you always got
If you sit in the barber's chair long enough, you'll eventually get a haircut
Most things can be preserved in alcohol; dignity, however, is not one of them
Progress, not perfection
think......think.......think
Keep it simple
This too shall pass
Stick with the winners
H O P E = Happy Our Program Exists
Recovery is a journey ...not a destination
To thine own self be true
Turn it over
Nothing is so bad, a drink won't make it worse
Willingness is the key
Keep the plug in the jug
Do it sober
Hugs not Drugs
Just for Today
Pass it on
Don't quit before the miracle happens
Time takes time
Use the 24-hour plan
When all else fails, follow directions
Change is a process, not an event
Call your Sponsor before, not after, you take the first drink
I was sick and tired of being sick and tired
It's the first drink that gets you drunk
Take what you can use and leave the rest
Help is only a phone call away
One drink is too many and a thousand not enough
Keep coming back
Easy does it
Stick with the winners - Win with the stickers
Serenity is not freedom from the storm but peace amid the storm
Principles before personalities
Seven days without a meeting makes one weak
Slogans are wisdom written in shorthand
If it looks like a Duck and it Quacks like a Duck it's probably a Duck
One of the best parts of recovery is getting your feelings back. The worst part is getting your feelings back.
A GRATEFUL Alcoholic won't drink
Give time...time
1. FEAR Face Everything And Recover
1a. FEAR False Evidence Appearing Real
Take the cotton out of your ears and stick it in your mouth
Fake it until you make it
