Quote of the Week

“Half measures do avail us something – it’s just the half we don’t want.”

Before recovery I was a master of “half measuring” in my life and what I got was the half I didn’t want. At work I arrived late, did just enough to get by and was the first to leave. The result is that I was fired a lot. In relationships I paid attention just enough to get what I wanted and wasn’t very interested in doing what she wanted to do. The result is my relationships didn’t last very long. I half measured my way through school, with my family, with my health, and the results I got were always the half I didn’t want.

In the beginning of the program, I was half measuring it as well. I showed up late, sat in the back, didn’t help clean up and wouldn’t go to fellowship. After complaining to my sponsor that the program wasn’t working, he quickly pointed to my half measure attempts and the half measure results I was getting. If you want to be happy, joyous and free, he told me, then I’d have to give the program everything I had.

Once I became willing to do whatever it took to get and maintain sobriety, things did begin to change. When I arrived early and greeted people, I became known and felt a part of. When I started sharing what was really going on, I felt better. And when I really worked the Steps, I began to recover and the desire to drink and use lessened and finally left me.
​​​​​​​
Today I no longer half measure my way through life, and because of that I get to enjoy the full benefits of everything I do…
