Keeping emotions sober allows for sobriety from substance or behaviour abuse! Admitting and Sharing the burden starts the program.
In his first complete year without alcohol, Raj said he could finally take responsibility and let it go. The slogan “Let Go and Let God!” was used many times daily.
Love was alive at the 1 year celebration and it was obvious as he shared his story with close members. They showed much love for Raj and each shared his/her appreciation for Raj and his hard work in service to others.
He agrees that recovery takes teamwork, daily reflection, many meetings and most important of all, a higher Power who in his case is the God of the bible.
Raj realized we are not born bad. He says somehow we just got used to choosing wrong ways to escape even though we knew it! For the person with the ADDICTIVE genes, an invisible line gets crossed and a habit of escape may become an addiction!
Raj said “Not Sharing the Burden is selfish”. He said “It is my duty to expose anything I know because something in me can save a life and I don’t want to miss the opportunity”
12 step has 5 MM to 10 MM sober people in her meetings every day. 40 MM to 50 MM friends and relatives experience relief!
SOME DOUBT THE BENEFIT OR VALIDITY OF SHARING THE BURDEN AND ALL OTHER 12 STEP ORGANIZATIONS?? I DO NOT DOUBT IT AT ALL, DO YOU? DOES GOD LIKE 12 STEP?
