Oct. 21, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step
Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015

Today, extend gratitude but pull back on taking pride on the day that greeted me sober and saw me through doing what is expected of me – expected of the Program, expected of the responsibilities to sobriety, and expected of myself. I need not be bogged down with anything from my drinking past – shame, remorse, regret, grandiosity, egoism, anger, depression, or anything else that I could find to keep myself in the gutter. Today, if I awakened sober and proceed through the day doing what is expected of me and do it with integrity and ethics and then go to sleep remembering all that I said and did, then today will be good. I can be grateful for that seemingly simple achievement and, today, it is enough. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
