I Put Them Down

“… there is always a sticking point, a point at which we say, “No, I can’t give this up yet.” – 12&12 p. 66

Someone struggling with weight ask me “How do you stay trim and fit?” I told him I exercise regularly and gave up eating all grain, beans, potatoes, and all types of oil. He said “I need to lose about 60 pounds but I can’t do that.” I completely understand. We are only ready when we are ready. When we are sick and tired of being sick and tired we put down that which is hurting – or killing – us. With regard to booze and drugs, I’m grateful I put them down before they killed me because really, truly, ILML!
