Watch Your Step

How many times has someone advised us to “Watch your step!”
This is always good advice when there is a potential problem in the area
where you are walking. This advice is always appreciated and could save us
from a bad tumble.

I discovered this fact many years ago, in fact in 1982 I had taken a bad
fall–actually I crashed because of an addiction. It was at this time in
my life that I had to watch my step–one step at a time–like baby
steps. I knew that if I didn’t watch my step then I would be back at a
point in my life where a misstep could cost me my life or the life of
another. So, I learned about the Steps of AA and how to use them so as
to keep me from tumbling headlong back into my addiction. Now that was
these many years ago and I have been watching my step –one day at a
time. I have found out that if you aren’t paying attention to where you
are walking you just might take a tumble and then maybe something far
worse than a skinned up knee might occur. And addictions work that
way–one minute you feel you have the world by the tail and whammo–you
trip and you end up flat on your face.

I know now, now that we have a 12 step program of recovery for persons
depressed(been there done that) that this step program works for us as
well. For many of us who feel we are attached to these feelings of
hopelessness–we now can go to meetings and hear how others are watching
their step and walking securely with the help of others in this program
of recovery. If we don’t have a meeting then we can go to our website
www.depressedanon.com and find out how we can learn more about how to
walk one day at a time and live in the serenity that our steps are
secure.
