A GIFT THAT GROWS WITH TIME

A GIFT THAT GROWS WITH TIME
June 26

For most normal folks, drinking means conviviality, companionship and colorful imagination. It means release from care, boredom and worry.  It is joyous intimacy with friends and a feeling that life is good.
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 151

The longer I chased these elusive feelings with alcohol, the more out of reach they were. However, by applying this passage to my sobriety, I found that it described the magnificent new life made available to me by the A.A. program. It “truly does get better” one day at a time.  The warmth, the love and the joy so simply expressed in these words grow in breadth and depth each time I read it. Sobriety is a gift that grows with time.
