It is 10:40 pm and I am now at 64.8%.

In the meeting tonight, the realization that I carried away was that the recovery group is unique because it is policed by the disease itself.  We don’t need a government, a leader, rules, dues, or punishments.  If I do not work the steps, if I hurt others, if I refuse to enlarge my spiritual environment – the disease will find me and kick my ass.  And I trust the other alcoholics and addicts because the disease will kick their ass as well.  It is reasonable to call individuals on their bullshit, but it is not necessary to institute religious bodies designed to control behavior.  I am therefore thankful that I have this disease.
