Real Life Problems

“It is a design for living that works… But could it work on real life problems, not concerned with drinking? I had my doubts.” – Daily Reflections 
Since I’ve gotten sober, I’ve been through a few “real life problems”. I’ve become really, desperately broke, many times. I got married, and divorced, and married again, and almost divorced again. I had four kids in sobriety. I had an inoperable brain tumor, shoulder surgery, my appendix taken out, and was prescribed lots of drugs. I’ve been lied to, stolen from and cheated by others. I’ve had a million other problems. AA, Alanon, recovery friends, my sponsor, my higher power and the principles of the program pulled me through every time — as long as I stayed in the center of the life raft I was safe. When I stick with the program and keep myself spiritually fit, I can survive any problem, I come out even stronger, and ILML!
