Toast of the Season
The holiday season is a joyous one. We have to make social decisions that are right for us and that does not mean we can't be a part of the celebration. We have to know what we will and will not accept in terms of socializing in sobriety.
Step Twelve is the last of the steps but marks a new beginning for us. We have found faith but now we have to prove that faith through service to anyone in need.

Holiday 12 Stepping - Part I
As long as there are holidays, sobriety will be an issue. This is an article I published for the last three years but is timeless. Karen Casey, a well-known author, shares her wisdom and advice to keep all of us safe and sober through the holiday season. This is Part I of her article.
What Am I Missing?
It took us so long to get into recovery that the early days of sobriety might seem too good to be true. When life becomes "normal" it might be something unfamiliar to us. We might question our recovery and ask, "what am I missing?"
Remembering My Dad
This is the first Father's Day without my dad. He gave me so much but he also gave me a genetic predisposition to a disease called alcoholism.
Mother's Day is one of the most celebrated days of the year. Not every woman is a mother but we are all daughters. Examine your own relationship, past or present, with your mom. Are/were you the best daughter you could be?
After we are in recovery for a while, it is easy to sometimes lose track of what was important to our sobriety. Gratitude is one of those things. Easy to say what we are grateful for but do we truly feel it.
Addiction and the Workplace
Recovering addicts have much to offer an employer but disclosing your situation may not always be favorable. Use common sense and don't be so quick to wear your recovering heart on your sleeve. Know the difference between honesty and foolishness.
Where We Are Supposed To Be
When we begin recovery we are told that sobriety will change our lives. It does. But there is also a real world. Somehow, though, we always end up exactly where we are supposed to be.
