December 24 • Who Is Choosing?

Day 168

So much of recovery seems to be an ironic choice; not being able to choose is part of what led us to the program in the first place. But I get it.

I can't imagine having to do this "alone"; I am so fortunate and grateful for the family and friends and fellows that are encouraging me and loving me each day.

Today I choose to be better than yesterday. Today I choose not to seek those moments that feed my addiction. I choose today, because I am weary of letting my addict choose for me.



When I stop and think about our chance to grow

The past crashes away and the change shows

Choosing comfort over change

Choosing comfort over change

Hating clouds but wanting rain

Choosing comfort over change

–Frank Giovetti, "Comfort Over Change"
