Overview


Since 1954, Twenty-Four Hours a Day has become a stable force in the recovery of many alcoholics throughout the world. With over six and a half million copies in print (the original text has been revised), this "little black book" offers daily thoughts, meditations, and prayers for living a clean and sober life. A spiritual resource with practical applications to fit our daily lives.

"For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision" is part of the Sanskrit proverb quoted at the beginning of the book which has become one of the basic building blocks for a life of sobriety. In addition to a thought, meditation and prayer for each day of the year, this handy, pocket-sized volume also contains the Serenity Prayer and the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is a simple, yet effective way to help us relate the Twelve Steps to everyday life and helps us find the power not to take that first drink each day.

This was the first meditation/devotional book I received when starting my recovery from Drugs and Alcohol 20 yrs. ago. It has foundational principles which have contributed to my staying sober all these years. Highly recommend to those in and out of recovery or anyone in a 12-Step program.

When I purchased this read, I wasn't aware that God is mentioned on every page. But after disciplined reading, every day of each affirmation, I'm happy that there is such importance placed on a spiritual being that want's what best for us. I've been in the program for many years and sober for the majority. But I just joined AA from another program. I'd been exposed and have quite a bit of experience with AA, but have only recently given myself completely. The first few weeks, I was having difficulty with God jumping out to me from every affirmation. But now I have come to look forward to it. Recovery is a blessing to all, whom put in the work. Affirmations point out the chaos and insanity which defined us. And I have found that faith, in a power that knows the answer to all my questions is a blessing beyond comprehension. It only makes sense. If God is responsible for the good things in life, then why the heck should we not devote one book that can be read daily to Him?

I am amazed that time and time again these daily readings will speak to me very personally and provide inspiration and direction, often in a very specific way.

Read the passage on January 6th. It sums up my world. I can't even say the second sentence aloud at a meeting without choking up and shedding tears! That "January 6th" passage has become a mantra for my mens group. We'll say one-six to each other outside the Halls as a salutation. It's gotten me through some fleeting moments. 1-6 everyone

It doesn't matter what I am feeling or going through on any given day.....When I pick up my 24 Hours a Day book, it never ceases to amaze me that no matter what, when I turn to the page for the day....IT HAS ALWAYS IN ONE WAY, SHAPE OR FORM HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH WHAT MY SITUATION WAS FOR THE DAY!!!!....It's not a mistake...or VOO-DOO, IT"S GOD and BELIEF that YOU CANNOT DO THIS ALONE AND IF YOU TRULY WANNA BE SOBER GOD WON'T LET YOU DOWN!!!!

It is hard, once I discovered this book, to miss a day reading it. This book consistently talks about YOU , the alchoholic, and how to live each day sober. A must read!
