Taking my own Advice

Today I am taking a big dose of my own (and others) advice....

-It gets better, I promise.
-One day at a Time
-It's progress not perfection
-Don't give up before the miracle
-Don't drink, not even if your ass falls off
-In with God, out with craving

Come on guys, there's like a 1000 more. Share your favorite one liners!


  1. I haven't gotten a DUI (lost my family, eaten out of a trashcan, had sex for money....) YET.

  2. My fave is "keep it simple"....cuz I tend to try to make EVERYTHING complicated!

  3. *More will be revealed
    *It works if you work it!

    Something I say, when I am trying to center myself, is "In with God, Out with my will." Reminded me of Emily's In with God, out with Craving.

  4. I like "Give time time" - it reminds me to try to be patient....

  5. I am leaving my husband and two small children for 30 days starting Monday....I'm so scared.....any advice out there?

  6. Do you mean for rehab? Have faith and trust in those trying to help you. Please write back in 30 days and let us know how you are doing.

  7. 30 days for becoming the Mom you once where or were meant to be... Worth it! Xo

  8. Yes, rehab.....words I never thought I would type.....or utter about myself....I'm so scared......I need to do this and I will but really dreading Monday....I feel like such a failure....

  9. Your feelings are normal. You are doing the right thing. Even though this is hard now, in the long run your life and your family's life will be so much better. A couple of quotes on courage:

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. ~Ambrose Redmoon

    Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear. ~Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar, 1894

    Courage is being afraid but going on anyhow. ~Dan Rather

    Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared. ~Edward Vernon Rickenbacker

    Please write back upon your return -- but post it on Emily's most recent blog because most of us don't review the older posts for additional comments...


  10. Will do.....thanks for the wonderful quotes....they really helped.....leaving this afternoon......wish me luck....
