Your first 24 hours of sobriety is a great achievement. This pocket medallion will mark your spiritual awakening when you carry it as a symbol of your personal change and achievement. It will serve as a reminder that you will continue to maintain your abstinence by accepting your limitations, working the Twelve Steps, and attending meetings regularly.
Look back on your last 24 hours with satisfaction and recognize it as the achievement that it is. Then look ahead to today, because today is the only day you must commit to being sober, 24 hours at a time. When you need a reminder of this pledge to yourself, take this token in hand, and feel its strength.
Minted in solid bronze, plated in nickel, selectively enhanced with gold, and then imbued with rich black enamel on both sides, the proof-like AA 24 Hours Sober coin is the perfect way to commemorate your current sobriety, and all the days forward, in a physical, easy-to-carry way. The obverse features the words “To Thine Own Self Be True,” from Shakespeare’s Hamlet (Act 1, scene 3, 78–82), a motto that those striving for sobriety know well. The reverse features the AA Serenity Prayer: the mantra of AA’s sobriety 12-step program. It reads as follows:
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
Whether you are 24 hours sober or using this coin as a daily reminder of your commitment, know that you can do it with the help of a higher power and the courage to change.
