Daily Reading for January 21


My sponsor told me all progress is in direct relation to how much pain I am no longer willing to endure. When my son was almost killed, had crack psychosis and faced ten years in prison, I was so afraid for him. I did not think I could survive. I was desperate for tools. When a woman in a meeting shared that she had three adult sons who were in prison, I knew she was the sponsor for me. She was someone who knew what I was facing. She had what I wanted - a way to survive with children in prison. With my sponsor's help, I learned to let go and let this child be an adult and suffer his own consequences for using drugs. I did what she told me to do: read literature, write, work the steps and do service. I learned to have confidence that whatever the addict had to go through, no matter how dire, even death, it was his journey, not mine. His fate hung in the balance many times. Today, many years later, my sponsor and I are grateful that, unlike their fathers, our sons are no longer in prison and have found recovery.


Thought for Today: I do what my sponsor did for me, especially when a newcomer comes to a meeting, I share my story. With this, the newcomer may realize they are no longer alone but among people who can understand their situation.
