    For all of us, It’s all about a second chance,
    an opportunity to create a
    new direction in our life that
    we never before thought possible.

    If you are new,
    You may be one of the lucky ones who are
    brimming with excitement and hope for the future –
    Now, on the other hand, you may be feeling terrible.
    Don’t be disappointed if these happy feelings don’t come right away.

    After all, you’re new
    and you may still feel a bit uncertain
    for some period of time.

    But, Looking ahead,
    you may wonder how to get recovery all at once.

    This is why you may want to put together a
    Workable plan of action for your recovery –
    This is why you may want to set some priorities.
    A plan to work recovery, one step at a time as it were.

    That is what we are going to talk about this week,
    Setting Priorities in Recovery.

    Ok, Chrissy, you’re first.

    When you were new, what were your priorities?
    After some sober time, did those priorities change?

    I would ask myself a question, “How important is it?”
    Do I want to be right or do I want to be happy?

    What steps help with setting and executing priorities/goals
    What other tools help and how?

    Just making the decision to work a program automatically made recovery a priority.

    What specific goal are you working on now?

    Retirement
    Maintaining a spiritual life
    Tri-County Conference
    Picking up up to two more sponsees
    Write a book?
    Talk at a prison
    Call sponsor more
    Date nights/more romance

    Here are some tips, I would like to get your experience:
