Surrender – Riley D_Feb 2018

Hello! My name is Riley and I’m an addict. 🙂 I’ve said this countless times in my life. I have attended more meetings than I will ever know. I’ve been a meeting secretary with my treasurer girlfriend, had a dozen sponsors, and I’ve even been on a service committee. Relapse, after relapse, after relapse as I tried still to find an “easier softer way”. I must have tried to figure my way around doing the steps a million ways at least! The only direction this led me was to prison, where I’ve lived for a third of my life. An old Celly once told me “The lazy man always works twice” which has been my experience. I have been humbled (thank God), taken the steps and have been sober ever since. I smile now, thinking of words that still ring over and over in my head… “Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path”
