Step by Step

Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019

Today, if alcohol is “cunning and baffling,” its end product – alcoholism – is mysterious because it took alcoholism to lead me to a Program to begin my physical, spiritual and emotional recovery. 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 the healing begins. Today, I respect and am almost grateful for the experience of alcoholism because it has brought me to where I am and have never been before – here. And our common journey continues. Step by step. – Chris M., 2019
