A motivational idea
Half Measures avail us nothing. I know, seems unfair. After all, half measures should avail us half. I would have been willing to get halfway sober. But it was true that all my half measures–cutting back, switching drinks or addictions, trying to time them, changing patterns–all this resulted in no change at all.
Today, I give all my effort, first and foremost, to the relationship with my higher power and to the fellowship that taught me a new way of life.
