The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous states that some “are naturally incapable of grasping and developing a manner of living which requires rigorous honesty. Their chances are less than average”. Honesty can be as much of a challenge while working the program as it was in the beginning. Many of us struggled to admit with “rigor” the seriousness of our addiction when we started the twelve-step program and many of us still find ourselves challenged to admit our stumbles and even relapses along the way. But having discovered freedom, I aspire to “trudge the Road of Happy Destiny”, and so – today, I will be honest.

That’s a good challenge. I struggle with honesty in some areas, but I do wish I can be honest and not have to put up a pretense. I have experienced the freedom that comes with honesty, and I too will work on being honest on this road to recovery and thereafter.
