Being spiritually fit requires being honest, open-minded, and willing. It means working through the 12 steps and going to meetings. It means following direction even when you don’t want to, or don’t understand why. It means taking care of yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally. It means being able to ask for help, and accept it when it’s offered. Most importantly, it means keeping in constant contact with a higher power.
Learning how to live by these guidelines and principles is challenging, espcially when the voice of addiction is screaming in your head. Much like physical fitness, it cannot be achieved overnight. All the intellectual planning and good intentions will not be enough. To live life this way requires consistent and well-directed action.
Changing the way you live and practicing these concepts in your life is worth the hardwork.
The result is a lasting freedom from the obsession to drink and drug.
