Dec. 23, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step

Wednesday, Dec. 23, 2015 

Today, if all things out-live their purpose, useful or not, today I begin to discard what serves no use to me anymore. Today I have no use for the emotional and spiritual damage that probably was bred long before my alcoholism and reinforced by alcoholism. They serve no useful purpose and never did, and it’s time to put an end to the damage they – and I – have done. Understanding that drinking for me is a choice and I alone am responsible to the consequences of that choice, those consequences have become so costly that I no longer want to be responsible to them. Because AA is here for the taking, it is my choice to grab it just as strongly as it is my choice to reject drinking and the cycle of abuse to myself and everyone around me. Today, enough is more than enough, and my choice is to go with sobriety. My first step: admitting I am powerless. And our common journey continues. Step by Step. – Chris M., 2015
