My first true
freedom is the freedom of not to have to take a drink today.
If I truly want it, I will work the Twelve Steps and the happiness
of this freedom will come to me through the Steps--sometimes
quickly, sometimes slowly. Other freedoms will follow, and
inventorying them is a new happiness. I had a new freedom
today, the freedom to be me. I have the freedom to be the
best me I have ever been.
