Recovery Day is an annual event, first held on September 30, 2012, which demonstrates and celebrates the ability of those with drug, alcohol and behavioral addictions to achieve long-term sobriety and live productive and healthy lives. The event was held in 12 major Canadian cities in 2013, 25 cities in 2014, and 30 cities in 2015.[1] Recovery Day is organized in part by Faces and Voices of Recovery.[2] Recovery Day is an important holiday for Canadians.

From a tiny seed in 2012 to September 2022, Recovery Day has grown into an international event celebrated on September 30th, the last day of National Recovery Month.

These are all very nice designations to commemorate. However, I believe everyone who has walked the long and winding steps to get here has had an interesting journey.  

Thanks to Al-Anon and Life Recovery support groups, I’m taking one step at a time and working on my skewed people-pleasing need to control, and fix others. And thanks to my Higher Power, my God of the Bible I am making progress, one day at a time.

Keep your eyes straight ahead; ignore all sideshow distractions. Watch your step, and the road will stretch out smooth before you. Look neither right nor left; leave evil in the dust (Proverbs 4:25-27 MSG).
