Life on Life's Terms: Acceptance in Recovery
The 12-Step Buddhist Podcast Episode 106

"And acceptance is the answer to all my problems today. When I am disturbed, it is because I find some
person, place, thing, or situation – some face of my life – unacceptable to me, and I can find no serenity
until I accept that person, place, thing or situation as being exactly the way it is supposed to be at this
moment. Nothing, absolutely nothing, happens in God’s world by mistake. Until I could accept my
alcoholism, I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life’s terms, I cannot be happy. I
need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be
changed in me and my attitudes." Alcoholics Anonymous, Basic Text, pg 417
