Oct. 28, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step
Wednesday, Oct. 28, 2015

Today, if I still hold onto all-consuming and self-destructive emotions like resentment, anger, grief or bitterness and will not or cannot yet free myself of them, today, I at least will not take on any more feelings that I cannot handle. Recovery is partly about getting rid of the garbage and self-defeatism acquired before and during my drinking days; it is not about acquiring more of the same. In refusing to take on any more, I at least will have something less to work through and, in fact, might be able to take on what exists one thing at a time. Today, my recovery will focus on getting rid of what needs to be gone and not on collecting more of what I do not need. All I need remember is to “Let Go and Let God,” and not take back which I let go. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2015
