Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Put it all down

With the understanding that addiction is a disease and the realization that we are powerless over it as well as over people's lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own.

Then, and only then can we be of any help to others.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Put it all down

Post by DianeB » Thu Dec 21, 2017 11:24 am

I usually bump this on Christmas morning, but this year seems
to have a lot of people needing a break from the stresses and
anxieties of addiction, so here it my wish for you this year and
always:

***************************************************************************

Peace and joy to you all.

Most Merry Christmas morning! Or what Holiday is your choice!
Or no Holiday! Just put it all down.

Wherever you are, however much you
are dealing with, no matter the pain and
sadness...just for this day, Put it down.

Pick up gratitude right now and carry that
joy and peace through the day.

Tomorrow is going to come and you can pick
up that misery again if you want. But, just today
Put it down.

Peace and joy and so much love....

Priceless....your words

How did you know that my fav expression to *moi* is your expression.....Put It Down....at this time of year.

As the family monkey wrenches keep landing, JFT, I am putting it down. Each day brings me a new perspective, a guidance, honest talk that working this program has brought into my life and vocabulary. It is truly ok!

I have choices. I have a hula hoop. I have my tools and my belief in a HP.

To you, Diane, and your family....And to my family in this forum....Keep the faith...my steps and my heart are lighter in the face of addiction because of the concepts taught here.

It works. Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year!

Thank you, Diane B.
Very moving, and so true.
A day of gratitude, joy, and peace is a gift we can all give ourselves. I know it's just what I need!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

Thank you Diane, for this—a day of peace sounds so wonderful. The holidays are supposed to be a time of harmony and joy, but I often find myself just “trying to get through them.” This year I am going to slow down, let go and let God, and CHOOSE serenity. JFT.

Thank you for the reminder.

I have procrastinated again this year and still have a FEW things to do. Lo and behold yesterday I wasn't feeling right, called my pulmonologist and primary doctor and ended up going to Urgent Care. Yep... I have bronchitis. Schreeching the brakes on my running around. Having to take care of me. I can do that.

Take care, all. <3
