For people in recovery from substance abuse, self-pity and negative thinking are bait for destructive tendencies. Any addictive thoughts can sabotage the emotional progress you make through treatment and diligent work in sobriety. Easy Does It provokes daily reflection through its inspirational quotes, meditations, and AA slogans. Now, cravings meet compassion, and self-pity meets self-love. Your recovery finds its heartbeat.
Inner peace and contentment will disable any trauma, loneliness, or emotional pains in your recovery. Remember, though: spiritual awakenings and contentment do not come all at once. Recovery is not a light switch, but a daily march. The march must always be purposeful and patient, and no one can do it for you.
Easy Does It, written by the authors of The Twelve-Step Prayer Book, is a Twelve-Step meditation book that guides your intentions on a daily basis. It relies upon its deep understanding of spirituality and mindfulness to bring about serenity. These aren’t simple buzzwords: they are the birthplace of your day’s spirit. One simple thought can change your day. Make yours serene.
These meditations were written for service members by service members. These people are serving—or have served—in the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Air Force, Reserves, Army National Guard, Air National Guard, or the Commissioned Corps of the NOAA and Public Health Services and are in recovery from alcoholism or addiction. We thank them for their sacrifice and service.
