Keep it Simple

We are only as sick as the secrets we keep. — Anonymous—
It is dangerous for us to keep secrets. Shame builds, and we’ll want relief. We may turn to alcohol  or other drugs. True relief  comes by talking about our secrets, by sharing who we really are with others. Our program helps us live a life based on honesty. Our program helps us battle shame. We don’t keep secrets anymore. We start our meetings and share what we tried to keep secret before.
” Hi, my name is____________, and I’m am alcoholic.” ” Hi my name is_____________, and I’m a drug addict.” We keep telling our secret, and the shame gets less and less.
Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, I pray to live an honest life.
Action for the Day:  I’ll list any secrets I’ve been keeping. I’ll talk with my sponsor about them.
