    A wise recovery friend often told me that she took it in really tiny baby steps. She said it like this:

    First I came
    Then I came to
    and then I came to believe.

    I understand it now. In the beginning, all I could do was show up. I walked into meetings, sat down, and cried for an hour. I was barely able to squeak out my name during introductions.

    After awhile, after just suiting up and showing up to meetings, the fog began to lift. I found a sponsor and I worked step one. I remember when I “came to” and I started to realize just how powerless I was. I came, and then I came to.

    And finally, I came to believe. I came to believe a power greater than myself could restore me to sanity.

    Other threads to come: what is sanity, and the fact that I had to believe that the greater power in my life was NOT, in fact, my A. I had made him my god, and it was a process to remove him from power.

    I too (like Freedom) came to belive after I saw people in the program who had peace and sanity and even happiness. People who wer ein the same position I was, but could breathe, talk about something other than their A, sleep at night, etc. It made me belive that I could have it too.
