Men for Sobriety meeting

These are the thirteen statements of the secular MFS recovery program.  Not steps.  

MFS doesn't dwell on the past, but on the present and the future.  

  1. I have a life-threatening problem that once had me.
    I now take charge of my life and my disease. I accept the responsibility.
  2. Negative thoughts destroy only myself.
    My first conscious sober act must be to remove negativity from my life.
  3. Happiness is a habit I will develop.
    Happiness is created, not waited for.
  4. Problems bother me only to the degree I permit them to.
    I now better understand my problems and do not permit problems to overwhelm me.
  5. I am what I think.
    I am a capable, competent, caring, compassionate man.
  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 person.
  10. All love given returns.
    I will learn to know that others love me.
  11. Enthusiasm is my daily exercise.
    I treasure all moments of my new life.
  12. I am a competent man and 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.
