Baby steps into Steps 1,2 and 3

With the understanding that addiction is a disease and the realization that we are powerless over it as well as over people's lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own.

Then, and only then can we be of any help to others.

Baby steps into Steps 1,2 and 3

Post by mkcf » Sun Mar 27, 2016 9:13 am

I think I get it now. I am really not in control here. I can't make my sons life what I think it should be. I can only know that my HP is in control and know that if I listen and I'm open to Him, the he will show me the way. I know that things are not going to be a bed of roses. Life is tough. No poor me, if only garbage is going to insulate me or anyone in my family from the tough breaks of life. But, if I listen keenly and trust in my HP the fear lessens, the sadness isn't quite as deep, and I can find joy in some simple pleasures. Today is a day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad. Wow, I really understand what that means on this fine morning. There is hope for me yet.

"Today is a day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad." I heard this in church today and I repeated it over and over until the Peace came.

I know that my AH was out buying drugs illegally yesterday. His "tells" are so obvious. That and the time frame of "grocery shopping" provides no doubt of where he was. I didn't ask anything, tell what I knew had occurred or get angry. None of that helps - he denies and I would just get angry. This forum and the chat meetings have changed my life. I am such a different person than I was 8 months ago.
