repost: 50 great sayings that will help your recovery

Maggie at Sober Courage posts a lengthy list of saying and catch phrases well known in recovery. I got so bold as to throw in a few at the bottom. And if you know of any more, feel free to add them, as well.

Sober Courage

TGIF everybody!

I love recovery sayings or catch phrases. You know the ones, you see them from time to time plastered on the back bumper of someone’s vehicle. Easy Does It… or First things first… or One Day at a Time… There are so many of them! They help me stay motivated and fill me up with hope, inspiration, encouragement, and so much more. They also remind me what is important and what is not, and what I need to work on! Some of these are not really recovery based sayings but they are really important to me so I have included them here also.

These amazing sayings have helped me through the ups and downs in recovery. I hope that you may find some new favorites here too.

  2. Keep attitude of gratitude.
  3. Being happy doesn’t mean that everything…
