A Year to Grow. This New Year can be a time of GROWTH in sobriety.  While we have no crytal ball that tells us what luck and fortune the year will bring, we do have a program that gives us the power to make the best of the year, to GROW IN SOBRIETY.  We can make PROGRESS in overcoming resentments, and selfishness, and being self centered.  We can help others in there search for happy sobriety, and we can make better use of our talents and opportunities. We  can live sober, and we also can find happiness and true self-esteem in sobriety. In are drinking, a desperate search for happiness and self-esteem compelled us to drink, but we could never find our happy destiny in the bottle.  No matter what came to us things had a way of turning sour as we continued to drink and to take other harmful  substances. In our new life, we have a choice for good reson to feel confident and optimistic.  We have freinds who understand.  We have a HIGHER POWER who is always there for us. We face nothing ALONE and in the New Year all experiences can help us GROW. FOR THOSE OF YOU ON THIS SITE THAT  CAN'T  RELATE, KEEP SEARCHING AND GIVE YOURSELF A CHANCE YOU CAN DO IT AND YOU ARE NOT ALONE. till next time
