I have noticed that every single major step I have made in my recovery that gave me true results has involved me steppiing out side of my comfort zone.

Calling the drug & alcohol hotline and asking for help!

Keeping the doctors appoinment.

Following the doctors suggestion by going to detox.

Following the detox falks suggestion about going to at least 90 AA meetings in 90 days and getting a sponsor.

Taking the steps.

Making amends.

Every single one of the above I did not want to do, but I did them because I did not want to die a drunk! Every single one of those things that I did not want to do I did and all of them resulted in good results.

I have found that in order to keep moving forward in my recovery I have to be able to continue to step outside of my comfort zone.

My old comfort zone was sitting in my garage by myself listening to the radio drinking, that comfort zone damn near killed me.

What types of things have you all done in your recovery that involved you stepping out of your comfort zone? What were the results?
