Living the Program

March 6, 2015 by Kayce L.

Pain and misery were realities in our drinking and using days. Through living the program we learn that our dreams can replace our nightmares. We grow and change. We acquire the freedom of choice. We are able to give and receive love. We can share honestly about ourselves, no longer magnifying or minimizing the truth. We accept the challenges real life offers us, facing them in a mature, responsible way. We can find the support, care, and concern we need to face those realities in Fellowship and a Higher Power gives us a clean, clear window through which to view, experience, and appreciate reality as it is.

      My sobriety date is April 1st (April Fools day). I didn’t know It at the time that I was going to stay sober for the next 36 years. Setting a date never worked for me. God must have chosen that day for me!

      I know how scared I was, but you can do it. Just stay sober one day at a time, go to meetings and get a phone list and CALL someone if you feel like drinking! It’s not easy at first, but so worth it. You’re worth it. Good luck my friend.
