Smooth ride

My sponsor told me many years ago that I would never be finished with the Twelve Steps—especially Step One. He said that no matter how much I admitted that I was an alcoholic, I’d never completely understand it. My smart-alecky answer was, “That’s why it says ‘admitted.' " 

But, as in most things, I’ve discovered that he was right again. The longer I’m sober, the more about my own First Step is uncovered.
