Discovering the Power of Gratitude: Sober Meditations Episode 7

Gratitude helps any time that I'm buying into those thoughts, anytime I'm projecting on my life, these thoughts as being real, when they're not, when we're talking about cravings, when I might think a drink would be a good idea. If I can look at gratitude, look at what I'm grateful for in my life. It puts everything in perspective.
Sober Meditations is a free resource of contemplative alcohol recovery meditations, recorded by recovering alcoholics who share their experience, strength, and hope in a contemplative meditation format, one thought at a time. In the final episode of the Craving Series, Buddy C explores the transformative power of gratitude in overcoming alcohol addiction.
