Co-NNections Recovery Stories

February 22, 2022

I entered CoDA as a confirmed atheist. Yes, I read God in the CoDA literature. The word is everywhere, and I read it without thought. At some point I felt better, and I knew this program would work for me. A few weeks later I realized CoDA is a God Program. I had a dilemma: renounce atheism which was an important aspect of my intellectual bulwark or accept CoDA, God and all. The decision was easy, I thought. CoDA was working; years of therapy did not work.

Everything went smoothly; until Step Three. I worked Step Three for three years before giving up my will and surrendering to God.

Twice while working the Steps for that first time, I felt the presence of God. The feelings are beyond my explanation. I wanted God with me all the time. I prayed, meditated, and did whatever I thought of to recreate that experience. Finally, I realized I had a Step One issue by trying to control God. I realized I had to accept God as God is.

Thank you, CoDA.
