Every alcoholic who cares about sobriety knows that it only happens one day at a time.
Mark your sobriety with this pocket medallion, which you can carry as a symbol of your personal change and accomplishment. You can look back on your achievements with satisfaction, and then look to today because today is the only day you must commit to being sober. When you need a reminder of that pledge to yourself, take this token in hand and feel its strength. By accepting your limitations, embracing and working the Twelve Steps, and attending meetings regularly, you are learning the behaviors that will help you maintain your hard fought abstinence.
Minted in solid bronze, with a special finish that simulates the look and feel of gold, Nickel Bi-Plating, and then imbued with dark red enamel on both sides, the AA Praying Hands coin is the perfect way to commemorate another 365 days of sobriety in physical, easy-to-carry way. The obverse features the words “One Day At A Time,” beneath a pair of praying hands and the hours of the day surrounding the edge of the coin. 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 just dealing with your sobriety or using this coin as a daily reminder of your commitment years later, know that you can do it with the help of a higher power and the courage to change.
