Today I am going to talk about the importance of being honest with yourself if you are an alcoholic.
In order for me to stay sober, I have to be brutally honest with myself and admit that alcohol is my problem.
It’s not just a social lubricant or something that helps me loosen up; it actually has a serious impact on my life in all aspects.
If you find yourself struggling as well, take this opportunity to reflect on your drinking habits by writing down how much you drink each day and what kinds of consequences it causes in your life like blackouts or hangovers, then consider cutting back!

The Seventh Step is where we make the change in our attitude which permits us, with humility as our guide, to move out from ourselves toward others and toward God.TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, p. 76
I can’t wait to tell you about the amazing journey I went on when God finally removed those things blocking me from Him and Christ’s light.
The experience was more glorious than anything I could have ever imagined, because it gave me freedom from all of my former characteristics that had led to a life wrapped up in myself. After this humbling Step, for the first time in years, I feel clean!
Every day, I am in awe of the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than myself. God has given me strength and prepared me for all that comes my way today!
With His strength, I can help those in need and with any problem that comes my way today.
I know He has granted me the opportunity to do his will and prepared me for anything out there today- which means a lot knowing how important being helpful is!
If you are struggling with any of the 12 Steps, please reach out to a sponsor or your AA group. There is always someone who will be there for you and help you through this difficult journey.
Take it one day at a time and know that God has prepared an amazing future just for you!
