FR LEO'S DAILY MEDITATION #essentialsofrecovery


“No one knows of what stuff one is made until prosperity and ease try one.”
~ A. P. Gouthey

I must not get too comfortable or self-confident. I must not plateau at this stage of sobriety. I cannot afford to relax in past achievements. Sometimes, I hear my addiction saying “You’ve done all you need. Relax and take it easy.” Other times, the sick voice commands, “Listen to the stupidity of these newly recovering people. Avoid them! You don’t need meetings now.”

Based on my experience, when things are going well I need to be careful. A complacent sobriety is dangerous. It leads to the disarming slip of arrogance and false pride. I need to remember the pain of my yesterdays and keep listening to the newly recovering.

Teach me to embrace humility and enjoy a realistic sobriety.
