You may be familiar with the term “Do the work.” Things that come easy to us are easily given away or are lost. When we work for things we have a greater appreciation of the benefits of that work. Recovery is not easy. It does require work. Humble work. I’d question the sobriety of anyone who did not put in the work. We may be able to stay clean without doing the work, but we rarely experience the benefits and joys that sobriety has to offer without doing the work. Today, I will continue to do the work of recovery. I will take a moment to reflect on the work I have already done and will find comfort in how the work I have put in has paid off.
