Before I review Just for Today: Daily Meditations for Recovering Addicts, I have to admit that I am not a recovering addict, I am a recovered addict. I last smoked pot around 25 years back. I had picked up this book from my library wanting to read this book and see if it motivates me. Kind of stupid really, but what the heck, it is just a book.
The book does have some good quotes which can inspire people who can sometimes waver from the track of sobriety. It acts as a friend to these recovering addicts. The structure of the book is also good. Start with a quote, explain the quote and then close it with an affirmation.
Now for the things which I did not like. The book seems very dated and could have had some new quotes. Just for Today might not appeal to the new generation. The focus is more on God and not on higher powers.
Overall, a mixed bag. Just for Today, as the title suggests might appeal to recovering addicts, but for those addicts who have recovered and are looking for some sort of affirmation, this book is not for them.
