Box 459’s 12 Tips for the Holiday Season (Adapted)

While some of Box 459’s usual “12 Tips for the Holiday Season” don’t apply given the nature of our social interactions this year, here are a few which have been taken and adapted from those published in this issue of Box 459 (download), which are still useful for keeping this holiday season sober and joyous:

  1. Line up extra virtual A.A. activities for the holiday season. Reach out to newcomers, speak at virtual meetings.
  2. Keep your A.A. telephone list with you all the time. If a drinking urge or panic comes – postpone everything else until you’ve called an A.A.
  3. Find out about special virtual holiday parties, meetings, celebrations held by groups in your area. If you’re timid, invite someone newer thank you are.
  4. Worship in your own way.
  5. Don’t sit around brooding. Catch up on books, walks, phone calls, emails and letters.
  6. Don’t start now getting worked up about all those holiday temptations. Remember – “one day at a time.” 
  7. Enjoy the true beauty of holiday love and joy. Maybe you cannot give material gifts – but this year, you can give love.
