Acceptance is one of the most important tools in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. There are many things that are out of my control, but if I can accept that everything is the way it’s supposed to be at all times, I might be able to attain inner peace. This is often easier said than done. If you’re like me,
you want
what you want
when you want it.

Matt, let’s go to you first.
What does acceptance mean to you?
How did you learn about this concept in early sobriety?
Did you have an ah ha moment?


For the alcoholic, loss or disappointment are usually involved in this acceptance process.


When you were new, tell us about your experiences of loss and disappointment.
What losses were you experiencing?
What were some of your disappointments?


In early sobriety, did you try to force certain outcomes, were there some consequences you were trying to avoid?
Did you get the outcome you desired?


For me, I had to accept that things were as they were. I was in denial of reality because I really didn’t like the reality of that time.
In early sobriety, did you struggle against reality? Give specific circumstances.
How did this affect your energy level?
How did this affect your mood?


What is the serenity prayer?
What is your experience with the prayer?


What does acceptance look like today?
Do you struggle today regarding desired outcomes?


What are you trying to accept today?
What tools, steps, prayers, slogans, traditions, are you using?

What would you say to the new guy?


I want to be in charge of my own life and maybe even the lives of those around me. I want to get my own way,
And I can get pretty upset when I don’t. Accepting rather than controlling usually brings me serenity.
