The most positive change I've ever made was to get sober in a 12 step program in 1999. All of the joy, challenge and growth of the past 15 years couldn't have happened without that change. I did it by asking God for help, and putting myself in the hands of those who had overcome alcoholism themselves and wanted to help me. I surrendered and took direction for the first time in my life. I've surrendered and taken direction every day since.
