Tonight, the group meeting was painful. I had to confess I’d fallen off the wagon. The compassion I felt from everyone was tangible. So was the disappointment.
I came away hopeful, and with a daily inventory, of liabilities and assets found within my character, that I need to explore, more fully, over the next few days.
In a nutshell, they are this: liabilities that will prevent me from healing from the addiction are, quite simply:
- False pride
- Negative thinking
- Vulgar, immoral thinking
- Giving up
- Half measures
They may seem a little odd, and to be honest, I need to explore them individually, to make sure they are named properly here. This is not an exclusive list, but it is comprehensive.
As I explore these liabilities over the next few days, it may be easier to understand each when seen in light of its opposite number, in my list of assets, those things that will help me come back to life:
- Seek support
- Positive thinking
- Spiritual, clean thinking
- Look for the good.
- Full measure
This is a lot to take in, daily. I expect it will be tough, at first, even overwhelming. I expect I will be able to master it. In fact, I’m going to fight, to do just that!
