Fix it!

"If it works, don't fix it" is an expression I hear from time to time when visiting local AA groups that don't hold Step meetings. My own home group holds weekly Step discussion meetings, and I thank God and my group for that.

I found out the hard way that there wasn't "an easier, softer way," but that the key to happy sobriety lay in working the Twelve Steps, in order, to the best of my ability. And I definitely have to work the last three on a daily basis.
