Continuing to do anything in our daily lives usually means getting better at it. And so it goes with Step Ten of AA Alcoholics Anonymous. Nobody ever really enjoys admitting to being wrong, it’s much easier to blame others. Admitting when we are wrong and promptly being accountable for our side of the street is absolutely necessary in order for us to maintain our spiritual progress in recovery. The best part about practicing the Tenth Step of AA in our daily lives is that the more we exercise self-discovery, honesty, humility, and reflection, the fewer apologies, and amends we have to make!...

It’s common for someone who has struggled with an addiction to want to isolate. They might not feel a desire to be social. They might not want to spend time with others. For some, being social might be so heavily associated with drinking and drug use, that this is enough of a reason to avoid people. Research has shown that having a strong network of recovering people to reach out to is an essential element to staying sober.

Reaching out for support eases the challenges that come with attempting to stay sober. Getting sober and staying sober is not an easy experience. However, knowing that you have recovering friends to support you can lift the burden of having to try to stay sober on your own. Of course, the success of recovery is ultimately up to you, but having friends to call can prevent a relapse. Having a network of support is one of the key ingredients to staying sober.

Tonight, we talk about Reaching Out.
