“If no one ever took risks, Michelangelo would have painted on the Sistine floor.”   – Neil Simon

The most important risk we can ever take is trusting another human being as a sponsor or mentor.  I remember back to when I finally decided to join the human race and abstain from all mind altering substances.  I decided that telling anyone my deepest darkest secrets would absolutely not happen.  The truth would remain within me till death do us part!

I had experienced telling the truth of my inequities in the past.  One day as a teen I had been caught with a hash-pipe in my bedroom.  The pipe belonged to a friend of mine.  I denied ownership to my parents.  Caught a pretty bad beating by my dad.  Then my mom came in to talk to me.  She said tell us the truth it is better that way.  So I spilled the beans.  After a horrendous ass-whipping one more time I found myself in front of my friend and his parents.  Well I vowed to steer clear of the truth after that.

Yet something inside of me said trust my sponsor George.  I am so glad I did!  The risk was well worth it.  Well over 20 years of sober living proves that.  Life is goooood!

Go, Go, Go…
