I am rounding the corner now on three years of continuous sobriety now and things just keep on getting better as life goes on. I was promised early in sobriety that if I stayed sober life would get better and better and better. I can honesty say that it has for me in all areas of my life. Things such as better friendships, better more suitable work, and family relationships have been repaired and are better, and I can go on and on. As my mind has cleared and I go forward in sobriety, great things continue to come my way. I give credit where credit is due, I believe whole heartedly in step 3 of our program of recovery. I pray each and every morning and when I retire at night, just as the Big Book instructs me to do. As a result I stay sober one day at a time. My higher power loves me and I love him and he wants me to succeed in my journey in recovery.
Milestones are a reminder that I must always look up and give thanks to the good Lord Jesus Christ for all that I have in my life. My heavenly father guides me and takes care of me day by day, all that’s required is a simple prayer and he shows up. Milestones are also referred to as stepping stones, I learn more and more as I journey further into recovery. They say that “alcoholism is a progressive illness” and I agree with that but “recovery is a progressive wellness”. I pray to thank my higher power for the life’s lesions I have been blessed to learn as I walk the road to happy a destiny. May God continue to bless you as we walk hand in hand in recovery! When anyone, anywhere, reaches out their hand for help I want the hand of AA to always be there, and for that I AM RESPONSIBLE.
