My Most Important Recovery Decision

There was one decision I made some time ago that has helped me the most in my recovery.

And that decision was to get up a half hour earlier each day and do my dailies first thing!

And when I say “my dailies” I include a minimum of three things:     
  • First. read from the Book of Mormon 
  • Second, do some kind of “Step Work” from the Addiction Recovery Program
  • Third, say a kneeling verbal prayer including actual names of family and friends
Of course, I can include other items in my dailies, but this is the basic list I shoot for each day.

And if I haven’t done those three things, I don’t feel like I have a good start to the day.

I realize that others do their dailies at different times.

But for me, if I try to do my dailies at a different time, something always gets in the way.  

There are very few interruptions at 5:00 or 5:30 in the morning.

And in retrospect, this one decision has helped my recovery more than anything else.
