No Matter How Many Hours There Are In A Day This Android App Will Guide You Through To A Full Recovery
Addiction is a serious matter for those who suffer from it. It makes no difference whether the addiction is alcohol or drug-related, it can have a huge impact on your everyday life, and will not only affect you, also but those around you. Thankfully, due to the technological advancements made in the 21st century there are many ways to cope if you are on the long road to recovery from addiction.
Twenty Four Hours a Day
Twenty Four Hours a Day is an Android app that mirrors the book written on addiction and recovery by Hazelden. Hazelden has become extremely well-known in recent years and they are a non-profit organization which specifically helps those suffering with addiction. In fact, the proceeds from their book, which has sold over 9 million copies, and indeed the proceeds from downloading their app go towards funding their many initiatives aimed at helping those who struggle with addiction.
What Will You Get With the App?
The app has an entry for every single day of the year and this will automatically sync with your Android device’s calendar. What you will find in each of these daily entries is easy to understand and will simply include things such as prayers, motivational sayings and meditation techniques. The main benefit to the user is that as they slowly recover and stay sober each day they will be greeted with many different motivational messages.
The app isn’t intended as a solution to addiction, but more of an inspiration to those who download it. The daily entries will only take a matter of minutes to digest, but hopefully they will help to lift your mood and to realize that there is light at the end of the tunnel. You can continue to use the book every year and therefore it is great value for money as well.
How to Begin
- Firstly, you will need to press the “Today” button and the app will automatically take you to the inspirational messages for the exact day of the year.
- You have the ability to customize the font to something easier for you to read.
- You will also find a search facility inside the app and this can be used to access the online bookstore offered by Hazelden where you will find a vast array of books and resources aimed at those recovering from addiction.
The app can be found in the Books & Reference category of Google Play and will cost $4.99 to download. You will require an operating system of Android 2.1 and upwards. The app has been extremely well received by users and has a number of five star ratings. The app makes it easier for anyone to focus on their recovery no matter where they are and it follows the Twelve Steps of Recovery that many people suffering from addiction may be aware of.
Recovery from addiction must be dealt with one day at a time and the Twenty Four Hours a Day book and app make this process far easier to follow. You don’t have to worry about reading vast amounts of information, which surely can be stressful enough – but just relax, enjoy and feel inspired by the simple daily messages you will find.
