Steps On Fire

A smoking start to recovery

Last march, i was driving, smoking a cigarette, and talking to my sponsor on speaker phone. I like to multi-task.

We were discussing the fact that I had not yet started working on the Steps. I chucked my cigarette out of the window, closed it, and continued the conversation. Thirty seconds later, I smelled what I thought was a house fire.
