12 Promises

I can expect a miraculous change in my life by working the program of CoDA.

As I make an honest effort to work The Twelve Steps and follow The Twelve Traditions…..

1. I know a new sense of belonging. The feelings of emptiness and loneliness will disappear.

2. I am no longer controlled by my fears, I overcome my fears and act with courage, integrity and dignity.

3. I know a new freedom.

4. I release myself from worry, guilt and regret about my past and present. I am aware enough not to repeat it.
