2 Peter 2:18 They speak empty, bragging words. They make their appeal to the earthly longings of people’s sinful nature. They tempt new believers who are just escaping from the company of sinful people.
Early in my recovery I remember many people who spoke like they knew what recovery was all about. Whilst in a rehab one such person, knowing my goal was long time sobriety invited me to join him at the local hotel. I would like to say I didn’t but I did.
Best intentions when it comes to sobriety sometimes just aren’t enough. Everyone in recovery needs to find a supportive person who will keep them accountable and honest.
- Who do you know that could keep you accountable?
- Will you ask them to?
