A Different Kind of Danger


 

Marriage of two recovering addicts:

 

“The hardest thing for an addict to control?  Letting go of control!  And, for those of us fortunate enough to love another addict…that task can be evermore…daunting!

Things that bother me the most?  Knowing there is an addict in my own house…refusing help.

The Serenity Prayer in regards to loving an addict?  It’s understanding that I cannot control others.

How does a marriage between two addicts in recovery work?  I suppose it is believing that I can be there when her hand reaches out…With no questions asked!”

Help come with Faith
Each impediment we have.  Should serve as reminders of mistakes we cannot afford to make again

When I focus on what’s good today, I have a good day. When I focus on what’s bad, I have a bad day. If I focus on the problem, the problem increases. If I focus on the answer, the answer increases.
-Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous

And, in the end, only three things matter, how much I loved, how gently I lived and how gracefully I let go of things…not meant for me.
