Willingness is the key to my recovery. In the morning, I read On Awakening and pray the Third and Seventh Step prayers. I also ask specifically for willingness to do the next right thing throughout the day. I am strong willed and I don’t always have the willingness to do what is right when what is easy appears to be an option. There are also times when I am not sure what I should do next. In either circumstance, I can pray ,”please grant me the willingness to do the next right thing.” My Higher Power is always ready to give me the willingness I need to stay in recovery and be abstinent. I ask and it is given to me.
