"We can never escape from reality. We must adapt to the real world no matter how different and difficult it seems. We can’t change the facts of life, but we can change our attitudes toward them. That is the purpose of the Program, where we learn to cope without returning to false courage and comfort of our addiction.
Stress and pressure are enemies of serenity. When they threaten to overcome us, we remember that they have been trying to make mankind escape into chemicals for ages. The healthy attitude we work for doesn’t believe that stress and pressure come our way because “life isn’t fair.” It’s important to our recovery that we remember, “We don’t have attitudes; they have us.”
"I’m learning new attitudes toward old problems, and new solutions for them, by working my Program. I am learning to live in the real world."
