Oct. 19, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step
Monday, Oct. 19, 2015

Today, if alcohol is “cunning and baffling,” its end product – alcoholism – is mysterious because it took the experience of turning alcoholic to guide me to a program to begin my physical, spiritual and emotional healing. And without going through the deepest of gutters, the darkest of nights and the sickest of physical and emotional conditions, I may never have emerged from that life of being half-dead and half-alive to being, now, fully alive. In a bizarre osmosis, if I cannot be grateful, I must at least not deny, reject or forget those days of my drinking because they brought me to a place where a healing can begin. Today, I respect and can almost be grateful for the experience of alcoholism because it has brought me to where I am – here. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
