Step by Step

Thursday, July 13, 2017

Today, if the responsibility to sobriety sometimes seems overwhelming or too demanding if I fail to do it First Things First, I will not complain or cop the poor-me attitude or blow off steam on anyone or anything. Instead, I’ll remember yesterday when I couldn’t be trusted with any responsibility because I was too drunk or too hung over. I’ll remember gratitude and that my response in the past to “relaxing” robbed me of being trusted with those responsibilities. Today, no complaints, no self-pity, no turning my back on anything I’m asked to do. I’ll be grateful that I’m sober to be entrusted with the responsibilities that I have. That’s all. It’s that simple. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2017
