Hey! Not so fast!


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the concept of Pause, when agitated.  This has saved me from many arguments and other trouble since I got sober.

that I didn't get to my bottom overnight and I won't get fixed overnight

that each and every one of us (in recovery) must work the steps at our own speed (IMHO), often determined by our sponsor.

I agree. I flew through the steps in my first few months and then did them again, repeatedly), but have known people who worked one step a year and stayed sober.

Oh how that quote resonates with me! I am trying so hard to just shhhhhhh....and slow the hell down.

I love your posts.

Things have slowed for me in many ways. I'm grateful for that.
