The Road from Hell

As I go down the twisty windy road of addiction I notice my car is no longer complete and needs mechanical support, but I have no tools. I realize I have gone down a dead end called HELL. I now see a detour in which I choose to take called recovery, and it will lead me to my final destination called sobriety. As I turn I see an AA garage where they have tools and the support I need to get to my final destination. I realize that with all these new tools from AA that I need to organize them. I feel overwhelmed for there are so many. The sponsors at the AA garage give me the advice “Keep it simple,” and “Take one day at a time.” As I leave the garage I see there are no red lights.I will miss the twists and curves of speeding down the unknown often fatal road. You let me hide myself within your concrete barriers where there is no pain but I realize that you were just giving me a false sense of security.So, I say goodbye to all the back roads and dead end streets. Goodbye Alcohol, Drugs and Gambling. I now search for new paved roads forgiveness, lifestyle change and spirituality. For these streets have many green lights. I realize there will be yellow lights along the way but I will be cautious as I approach the railroad crossings and other warning signs I will encounter. As I follow this new path to my destination of sobriety, I will always remember the wrong turn I took that landed me in HELL.
