Sept. 8, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step

Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015

Today, choose to live in the solution of sobriety instead of the problem of alcoholism. Alcoholism isn’t a problem unless we feed it, and the Program empowers us with the choice not to drink by guiding us through a thorough and honest inventory of ourselves with the purpose of deciding if drinking is worth the consequences it entails. I am an alcoholic. It’s not a problem as long as I choose not to drink, though. And I choose not to whine that I cannot drink responsibly or moderately because, as an alcoholic, I do not have the luxury of responsible and moderate drinking anymore. Today, with a Program, I can choose not to drink and live in the solution of being sober instead of the problem of fighting not to drink and bemoaning that I no longer have a choice. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
