I’ll Not Turn Back

Psalm 73:21 At one time my heart was sad and my spirit was bitter.

Never forget where you came from. The day you do you start heading back there.

Not all of my drinking and using life were doom and gloom. I had some really good times and made some really good friends. The problem is if I start to reminisce too much about the glory days I can lose sight of my rock bottom days and convince myself, “it wasn’t that bad.”

Today I read Chapter Five of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Which says “Our stories disclose in a general way, what we used to be like. What happened and what we are like now.”

– How have you changed since starting recovery?

 

Prayer: Lord, help me today not to get complacent and to remember recovery is a journey, not a destination.
