Step One

At the rehab center I was at we  had to have steps 1, 2, and 3 done before we could be discharged. Each step had readings and questions you had to answer, along with writing your life story. When I wrote out my life story and put it on paper, it felt as if a small bit of weight had been lifted off my shoulders! My spirits were better and I felt positive about this whole “recovery” thing. So I went on and started doing my step 1 work. Step 1 that’s easy right? No! For 12 years I did want to admit I had a problem, because I was afraid of being labeled, judged, mad fun of.  I was pent-up with shame and guilt. Ultimately I need to get humble and get honest to work through step 1. And I learned to implement  humility and honesty in all my practices. Till next time….

I am in recovery from alcohol for a little over 1 year now. I want to inspire and give hope to people who feel hopeless and lost in this disease. There is a way out, it is not easy, but it's worth it! Come see my journey.
