Daily Readings for Persons in Recovery that are Using the Twelve Step Program

S, John

AuthorHouse (404 pp.)

$17.99 paperback, $9.99 e-book

ISBN: 978-1438923857; February 11, 2009


The author presents a frank collection of daily readings to serve as a companion guide to 12-step recovery programs.

Recovery is a long process, and one that requires careful thought, introspection and self-forgiveness. The book contains a year’s worth of daily readings aimed at easing that process. Entries are divided into three sections: “Wisdom for Today,” “Meditations for the Heart” and “Petitions to my Higher Power.” For example, midway through his chronicle, the author says, “Probably one of the biggest changes I have experienced in recovery has been achieving serenity and peace of mind. When I was drinking,…I lived in a state of fear. I suffered in quiet depression.” John S. goes on to explore the same thematic idea as it relates to his so-called Higher Power in the next two sections of the daily reflections. John S., a certified alcohol and drug abuse counselor, remains open and exceptionally honest throughout his daily struggles with his twelve-step program, his evolving relationship to a higher power, and his personal relationships. Though the author states that the book may be used as a resource to assist in a better understanding of a twelve-step program, readers won’t find a step-by-step guide here. Rather, John S. takes his reader on his own emotional journey and reveals the tenets and effects of the program as they affected him. John S. tells his reader upfront that if his words sound spiritual it’s because they are, and that he urges all to “keep an open mind” to find their own “Great Contractor.” Indeed, the focus of his own journey is very much centered in spirituality and a relationship with God. Still, even those not interested in a higher power may find this a worthy guide for battling addiction. The collection may also be useful for those supporting a loved one.


A wonderful, honest compilation of personal experiences for those who may need companionship during their fight with addiction.

Your Wisdom for Today has done so much for me in my recovery. It's my routine every morning when I get to work, before I do anything else is to open my email and read this. It gives me a peace of serenity so I can start my 24hours on a good foot. This web site has done a lot for me. Every morning I read the Recovery Lane's daily meditation. That gives me motivation in the morning and a little serenity every morning. I am very thankful for this site.
