Maintain Sobriety With A Daily Tenth Step

Written by DeShawn McQueen on Monday, 12 November 2012. Posted in Ten Step

November 12, 2012

    1. I have this acquaintance who is capable of being quite nice and is otherwise intelligent.

    On the other hand, he is quite obnoxious, barbaric and seems to be oblivious as to how his behavior affects or perhaps even annoys other people.

    My part is that I am intolerant and impatient, so much so that I immediately want to react.

    Consequently, I do not take the time to look beneath the surface to recognize why he is doing what he is doing and, more importantly, why does it bothers me so much?! Perhaps I have issues regarding control, and certainly, as mentioned above, intolerant.

    God, divorce me from impatience, intolerance and the need to control.

    Help me to accept persons, places and things as they are.

Please weigh in on this 10th step. Let us know what you think.

Also, inform us of any particular 10th step subject-matter that you would like to see appear in this column.

Remember, life is difficult enough without dealing with active addiction!

If you or someone that you love is struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism, please call or text. We can help you!
