THE EASIER, SOFTER WAY
If we skip this vital step, we may not overcome drinking.
Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 72
I certainly didn’t leap at the opportunity to face who I was, especially
when the pains of my drinking days hung over me like a dark cloud.
But I soon heard at the meetings about the fellow member who just
didn’t want to take Step Five and kept coming back to meetings,
trembling from the horrors of reliving his past. The easier, softer way
is to take these Steps to freedom from our fatal disease, and to put our
faith in the Fellowship and our Higher Power.
