Mark your time of sobriety with this special medallion, which will serve as an amulet, warding off the evils of alcohol, a tangible reminder of the milestones reached on the road to recovery. It’s a symbol of your personal change and accomplishment, that through 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.
Look back on your achievements with satisfaction, and look ahead to today because today is the only day you must commit to being sober. Every Alcoholic can look back on this accomplishment with satisfaction, but also look ahead to today and continue the success of sobriety. The strength of this token will help make that pledge as real and as solid as the metal itself.
Minted in antiqued bronze, and displaying the years of sobriety on the obverse, the AA Wisdom, Courage, Serenity coin is the perfect way to commemorate your first 24 hours of sobriety in 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.”
