Threefold recovery

I've had so many rewards from the Grapevine, its messages and fellowship. As its cover theme, the May issue addressed "A Threefold Disease," and D. B. from Oxford, Ohio was gentle and yet straightforward in addressing how our denial gets in the way of our level of sobriety.

How many times have we been told that alcohol is but a symptom and that there are twelve suggested Steps to our recovery? Just what does "willing to go to any length" mean? For me it has meant taking care of myself mentally, physically, and spiritually. Watching what I eat, and exercising. Addressing my mental and emotional health. Taking the time to address my spiritual well-being.
