I Can Stay Sober

I can stay sober.

I don’t have to relapse.

I never need to go back out there;

I can stay here—there is a solution.

I can stay here and stop running;

I can stay here and start saying yes to life.

I can find a Higher Power to rely on.

I can find some peace and find out who I really am.

I can make a decision and make some changes.

I can make some new friends—

And make amends to my old ones.

A lot of addicts will go back to using, but I don’t have to.

Not if I get a sponsor and get to work.

Take a deep breath…

If I can accept the truth and put away my fantasy,

If I can ask for a little help,

If I can take these suggested steps,

One day at a time, I will be free.
