We have a saying in 12-step recovery: if you want what we have, you have to do what we do.

“I’m Michael and I’m an alcoholic”… I can remember the first time I said that and how odd and uncomfortable it felt. Not because I wasn’t an alcoholic or an addict but at that time, I hardly understood what that actually meant. Today I'm clear about who and what I am, and the necessity of living a 12 step lifestyle!
