Aug. 1, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step
Saturday, Aug. 1, 2015
Today, caution against perverting “Take It Easy” into procrastination or neglect of the new responsibilities that sobriety requires. “Take It Easy” affords not only the luxury but the necessity to tend to my our spiritual and emotional care lest we be unqualified to help someone else with their own. Adversely, “Take It Easy” does not bestow “permission” to put off or ignore responsibilities to ourselves, others and the 12th Step edict to carry the Program’s message to the alcoholic who still suffers. The Program shows us how to balance the scale between taking it easy and procrastination, and if it’s weighted down by taking it easy at the expense of responsibility to ourselves and others, we become as irresponsible dry drunks. Today, seek the balance between taking it easy all the time and giving all our time to everything and everyone else. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
