Thoroughly Followed
Rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path.
Those who do not recover are people who cannot or will not completely
give themselves to this simple program, usually men and women who
are constitutionally incapable of being honest with themselves.

- Alcoholics Anonymous, (How It Works) p. 58 

Thought to Ponder
The express elevator to sobriety doesn't work -- please use the Steps.

AA-related 'Alconym'
N U T S  =  Not Utilizing The Steps.

Susan, very grateful recovered alcoholic by Grace. I did it. Made the dreaded mistake many years back. Went and told someone I was sorry for how I treated them. Promptly repeated similar behaviour shortly afterwards. Ouch. I have learned since that one must always do a proper inventory and a 5th step with someone else before making amends so that I am clear what I have done and how I have treated them. A 6th and 7th Step so that I have God's power to hopefully not repeat the same mistake. Then, when I am more clear and have received a bit of power from The Power, then I can really begin to amend/alter/repair relationships. It doesn't have to take long to get to that place but I must follow the process in order. It's written that way for a reason. Now I see it. Didn't back then. Blessed in this journey. Continued blessings in yours.
