Since 1954‚ Twenty-Four Hours a Day has become a stable force in the recovery of many alcoholics throughout the world. With over six and a half million copies in print (the original text has been revised)‚ this "little black book" offers daily thoughts‚ meditations‚ and prayers for living a clean and sober life. A spiritual resource with practical applications to fit our daily lives.
"For yesterday is but a dream‚ and tomorrow is only a vision" is part of the Sanskrit proverb quoted at the beginning of the book which has become one of the basic building blocks for a life of sobriety. In addition to a thought‚ meditation and prayer for each day of the year‚ this handy‚ pocket-sized volume also contains the Serenity Prayer and the 12 Steps and 12 Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. It is a simple‚ yet effective way to help us relate the Twelve Steps to everyday life and helps us find the power not to take that first drink each day.
