A sense of humour is valuable in recovery.
Version 1 of The Alcoholic's Prayer
In the past several hours I have not hurt any one.
I have not drank.
I have peacefully coexisted with life.
For that I am grateful.
But I’m about to get out of bed now and I’m really going to need your help.
Version 2 of The Alcoholic's Prayer
So far today, God, I've done all right.
I haven't had a drink.
I haven't gossiped, haven't lost my temper, haven't been greedy, grumpy, nasty or self-centered.
I'm really glad about that.
But in few minutes, God, I'm going to get out of bed, and then I'm going to need a lot of help.
