September 2012: Roll Backward

It wasn’t in my plans to change anything about myself when I came to AA other than to stop drinking. That’s all I thought was necessary. I was in for a shock. At my home group, I heard that my best thinking got me to the state I was in, and I’d best be advised to change my thinking. Oh bother!

I disliked the idea of change. Was I “willing to go to any length” to get it? My way hadn’t worked, so I became willing to give it a shot, even though I was pessimistic.
