A common phrase in Alcoholics Anonymous is ‘AA means altering attitudes’. Recovery for all people in 12 Step Fellowships entails the alteration of attitudes.
“I am convinced that attitude is the key to success or failure in almost any of life’s endeavours. Your attitude – your perspective, your outlook, how you feel about yourself, how you feel about other people – determines your priorities, your actions, your values. Your attitude determines how you interact with other people and how you interact with yourself.” – Carolyn Warner -
The greatest change that I experienced in recovery is my attitudes to many of life’s situations.
One of the best books I read and reread in early sobriety was Sobriety and Beyond. I get it out about once a year and brush up on my attitudes.
