FREEDOM TO BE ME
“If we are painstaking about this phase of our development , we will be amazed before we are halfway through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness.”
ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 83
My first true freedom is the freedom not to have to take a drink today. If I truly want it, I will work the Twelve Steps and the happiness of this freedom will come to me through the Steps—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. Other freedoms will follow, and inventorying them is a new happiness. I had a new freedom today, the freedom to be me. I have the freedom to be the best me I have ever been.
