so you have a little time behind you now. what do you say when somebody asks you what step are you on? do you hesitate with your answer? do you tell them truly you have not begun to work the 12 steps? if you do then what are you waiting for? we can only fake it until we make it for so long. believe it or not after having worked the 12 steps all the way through a few times i tell people i am on steps 1,2,3,10,11 and 12. those are called the maintenance steps. the steps we have to do every day of our lives in
each morning i do my morning prayers and do steps 1,2 and 3. even with a few days back to back in NA i am still a work in progress. yes as you accumulate more time the steps do get easier and even shorter but it is a continious cycle of re-working the steps on a daily basis. your sponsor will keep you honest and moving forward. what ever you do Step work is mandantory for your daily reprieve from your disease. we can never become recovered from our disease. we also need to work the 12 traditions. they are also an important part of moving forward spiritually and emotionally.
I do not and i repeat i do not have all the answers and most of the time i probably don't even know the question but i do know what to do to get the answer i am looking for. i
Keep an open mind, be honest and willing to go to NA lengths to stay in Recovery and you too can continue to live this new life God and the 12 step program of our choice has provided for us. it's always your choice. stay clean and be good to yourselves.
NA hugs and Love,
