April 18, 2017 - Readings in Recovery: Step by Step

Step by Step
Tuesday, April 18, 2017
 
Today, recommit as a recovering member of the program and its members who confide their Fourth Step and all other communications. We must treat as private all things any members share and cannot "gossip" with anyone whatever another member says even if there is no stated promise of confidentiality. Failure to treat as private all matters involving any member is a show of disrespect to both the other person and the program, and disqualifies us as a credible 12th-Stepper. In recovery, we cannot expect that what we share will be a private communication if we do not convey the same respect of others. Today, sobriety carries the responsibility of loyalty, trust and respect of the program and its members - and they have it. And our common journey continues. Step by step. - Chris M., 2017
