Ditto: No Commentary Necessary

Traveling hard this week and with another early morning and difficult meeting on the schedule I feared that tonight’s update would suffer. Never fear though, I ran across one of those rare pieces that I feel absolutely no need to add commentary or to add caveat. It’s plain, sound wisdom from a man who’s been there, done that, and discovered the key to recovery; don’t drink, regardless of how you manage it or what program you attend, just don’t drink.

Most of us were staying dry — getting sober — and getting “well”. That method of friend selection continued into my entry into the field and there I found many recovered folks that had a broader perspective on recovery. I think that we naturally gravitated toward one another and developed a more comfortable support system– no “musts” or insistence on anything, except “don’t take a drink”. ~ Examiner.com
