We Made a Promise
Blog post by: Alumni Relations Specialist
Sobriety is not just about not drinking or doing drugs anymore. We know this, because when we simply put it down, life doesn’t change. The promises we are given in the literature offer us a new way of living. But if we do nothing except simply don’t use, what will change? How does our attitude and outlook on life change for the better? We must do the work, and that entails examining our behaviors and our actions on a daily basis. It’s hard to admit when we’ve been wrong. Hard to see anything but the fault in others. We must continually strive to improve our conscious contact with God if we want our life to be filled with that new freedom and new happiness we were promised when we began our journey. Only then will we find the peace that we have been searching for.
