March 2, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step

Monday, March 2, 2015

Today, I will remember gratitude if I take undue credit for the sobriety I have found through AA. While it is justified to take pride in being sober the last 24 Hours, that pride must be within the boundaries of the Program; it cannot be stretched to egoism or seeking praise from others. For when pride extends beyond the boundaries of the Program, I risk taking back the surrender to the Power who carried me when I passed out or stumbled in my drinking days and even in some difficult sober days. Yes, I was the one who grabbed the lifeline of AA, but someone or something else had to toss it to me in the first place. Gratitude. And our common journey continues. Step by Step. – Chris M., 2015
