Design for Living
I have seen hundreds of families set their feet in the path that really
goes somewhere; have seen the most impossible domestic situations
righted; feuds and bitterness of all sorts wiped out. I have seen men
come out of asylums and resume a vital place in the lives of their families
and communities. Business and professional men have regained their
standing. There is scarcely any form of trouble and misery which has
not been overcome among us.

I'm Roxie, recovered alcoholic by God's grace. These are just some of the promises from Bill's Story in our Big Book. I know for me after I fought the steps then finally surrendered to them, worked them, that now I can live by them. It is a design for living that works in rough going. When I was drinking I was doing very badly as a Marine. A bad attitude, walking off my post. Amazing I didn't get a court martial. But once I took the steps I did very well. A letter of appreciation, Meritorious Mast, Good Conduct and even became a Watch Commander. I became a good wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. And no matter what is going in my life, from the worst days of the loss of my mom, dad and hubby; and even in the very best happy days, I have a design for living through the Steps, Principles and Promises. And most of all a Conscience contact with a loving God of my understanding.
