Gratitude As A Way Of Life
There are times when I cannot help but feel a tremendous sense of gratitude for the countless blessings, I received as a result of taking the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and making them a way of life. The first and foremost blessing is that a God of my very own understanding has entered my life and lifted the compulsion to drink from me and that I have been afforded a daily reprieve from alcoholic torture dependent upon the maintenance of my spiritual condition. Prior to coming to A.A., I ruined many an occasion for family members and friends who cared for me and loved me the most. I can still vividly recall one specific incident as if it were yesterday.
