EASY DOES IT #essentialsofrecovery

A SWELLED HEAD

The true snob never rests; there is always a higher goal to attain, and there are, by the same token, always more and more people to look down upon.

~ Russell Lynes ~

Recovery feels good! It feels good to get a good night’s sleep, eat right, have friends, and be more at peace. After a while on the Program our foggy minds cleared up. We could actually read and remember what we read. Our emotions calmed down. We felt proud of our progress.

At moments like these we must remember by whose Power we achieve such joy. It is not our own. If we let ourselves think we did it all on our own, pride swells our head and stops our growth. We can become cocky, thinking we’ve got it made, and drift back to slippery people and places.

A swelled head has no place in my Program. I must keep in mind that I didn’t get this far to rest and stop growing.
