WFS(Women for sobriety) Life Acceptance Statements WFS(Women for sobriety) Life Acceptance Statements
WFS New Life Acceptance Statements


1. I have a life-threatening problem that once had me.
I now take charge of my life and my well-being. I accept the responsibility.

2. Negative thoughts destroy only myself.
My first conscious sober act is to reduce negativity in my life.

3. Happiness is a habit I am developing.
Happiness is created, not waited for.

4. Problems bother me only to the degree I permit.
I now better understand my problems. I do not permit problems to overwhelm me.

5. I am what I think.
I am a capable, competent, caring, compassionate woman.

6. Life can be ordinary or it can be great.
Greatness is mine by a conscious effort.

7. Love can change the course of my world.
Caring becomes all-important.

8. The fundamental object of life is emotional and spiritual growth.
Daily I put my life into a proper order, knowing which are the priorities.

9. The past is gone forever.
No longer will I be victimized by the past. I am a new woman.

10. All love given returns.
I am learning to know that I am loved.

11. Enthusiasm is my daily exercise.
I treasure the moments of my New Life.

12. I am a competent woman, and I have much to give life.
This is what I am, and I shall know it always.

13. I am responsible for myself and for my actions.
I am in charge of my mind, my thoughts, and my life.

I really like them! I'm a woman, too, but think they could also all be Men for Sobriety statements.

I'd prefer to work on these than on the 12 Steps.

Red face Re: WFS(Women for sobriety) Life Acceptance Statements

I am going to another AA meeting tomorrow and asking for a sponsor and print out these statements so we can go over them.I am not really interested in going thru the 12 steps but they don't need to know that.

I can't help wonder what the men one would be called

MFS just doesn't sound right (actually it sounds more like a superstore. lol)

WFS sounds so good for a group on the forum

not only all the members of the society, but people who also want to stop

(by the way I now need to look up the society as I have never heard of it.)
