Feb. 11, 2024 - Readings in Recovery: Step by Step


Step by Step

Sunday, Feb. 11, 2024

Today, empower no one and nothing to undermine the self-confidence and self-respect I have developed in my recovery, nor will my progress be discouraged. People I might have injured in my drinking days but who cannot or will not accept my amends may want nothing more than to see me relapse. They will not have that control over me, even if insecurity might want me to yield just to avoid a problem. But a bigger problem looms if I permit anyone or anything to implant in me deeper insecurity or a disgraced self-confidence and self-respect. Today, with the Program‘s Steps and Principles as my lifeline, I will hold tightly onto what I have gained and will not allow anyone or anything to take it from me — not even alcohol and myself. And our common journey continues. Step by step. — Chris M., 2024
