16. Your last line says it all

After I felt sufficiently recovered the last time, I put my higher power on the shelf and took over the driving - effectively chose to be my own personal God. I sucked at it but didn't realize it until the addict took me to my knees. And since I was down there anyway, I decided to "pray" and thank goodness for that and the "power of the rooms". I'm recovering but I don't think I'll ever decide I'm recovered if it means I'm going to play God again. It's not good for me.
