If you create peace in yourself, you will create peace in the World

Peaceful people are trustworthy and likeable.  When we were using, we were often resentful, erratic, deceitful, and self-centered. We were not trustworthy. If you want others to trust and like you, get rid of your character defects by working steps 4 through 7. Stopping using is the beginning of recovery. We must get rid of our character defects to become peaceful people.


To-do:

Today my goal will be to make peace in myself, not the acquisition of material things or the control of others. I might need to get rid of chracter defects to attain this peace so I might even make an appointment with a confidential person to do the 5th step. This will give me a deadline to do the fourth step.
