Wisdom of the Rooms 12-31



December 31, 2018

Quote of the Week

"If I keep doing what I was doing, Ill keep getting what I was getting."


I remember when I was new to recovery I was very willing to follow direction. I went to ninety meetings in ninety days, got a home group, got a minimum of four commitments at various meetings, got a sponsor, and began working the Twelve Steps. I did a lot and I got a lot. My life improved, I felt better, and I started to recover. Even the promises began to come true.


Now that Im deep in recovery, I find that Im not as active as I used to be. Oh sure, I still go to meetings, and I even have a couple of commitments, but I find Im not doing all the things I used to do. And Ive also found that Im not getting out of the program what I used to get. When I heard this quote, I immediately made the connection.

When I spoke with my sponsor about this, he reminded me that I didnt need to go out to restart my program. There are always newcomers who need sponsors and meetings that need help, and I could always add a meeting or two. The good news is that as soon as I start doing what I did, I start getting what I got. So, if youre not feeling it these days, just think back to what you used to do when you were new and start doing it again.
