From the Preface: Taking life one day at a time has proven essential in the Al-Anon program of recovery for those whose lives have been adversely affected by the problem of alcoholism in a relative or a friend. This book, like it's companion volume _One Day at a Time in Al-Anon_, is designed to keep our focus on today and give us the courage ot change the things we can. ...Because these selections are based on sharings from individuals, they contain references to gender and to specific relationships, but the thoughts are applicable to people of all walks of life.
From what I remember, the focus of ODAT seemed to be dealing with active alcoholism. In contrast, CTC focus on the enduring effects of living with alcoholism over many years, such as: low self-esteem, lack of confidence, confusion, doubt, insecurity, all or none thinking (black or white thinking), control and trust.
I find the readings are very helpful in inspiring: thoughtful reflection, encouragement, challenge, love and acceptance, and positivity to assist me in my recovery.
I would recommend this daily reader to adult-children of alcoholics or anyone raised in an alcoholic home. Though I can't speak from experience, a person living with active alcoholism may find more comfort in ODAT.
