"Another flaw in the human character is

that everbody wants to build and nobody

wants to do maintenance."

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

With the help of our Higher Power,

sponsors, and fellow Program members we

have, completed the 12 Steps, studied

the Big Book, hit regular meetings,

worked the loops, given service, etc

....and finally were able to achieve

abstinence and reach our recovery goals!

Reaching our goals is one thing, but now

we must maintain what we've struggled so

hard to achieve. As COE's, we never

truly lose our addiction for

food. Relape is only a heartbeat

away. Therefore, we must diligently

strive to continue working the Program

tools to guard this precious gift that

we have earned.


I will diligently maintain the recovery goals I have worked so long and hard to achieve.
