Jan. 6, 2015 – Step by Step

Step by Step

Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015 

Today, I cannot take for granted the vital lifeline that the support of an AA home group and other program members are in my own recovery. As such, I need to determine that I am attending enough meetings to bolster my recovery or, if I am limited by whatever restraints to make the meetings, that I have a strong enough social network through the Program to carry me through. Working toward any goal, and maybe especially so if the goal is sobriety, can be more difficult if I am working alone. That difficulty is weakened if I can feel the support of others working toward the same goal but, in the process, I need to be willing to be honest in sharing my own history, what I have gained in the Program and on which Steps I need more work. Today, I need not be in self-imposed isolation, even in recovery, and I have to recognize the importance of peer and group support and acceptance. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
