I spent way too much time with a guy I sponsor tonight.  Chris.  And in fact it wasn't even too much time; it was that he cannot understand the process of letting go the ego.  He is walking through the process of the steps but he just isn't getting it; he cannot understand the mechanics of the goddamned ego.  And his ego is eating his goddamned lunch.

It's exhausting, listening to him grind it out hour upon hour.

It's exactly what I was like when I got sober, and for years afterward; too spun to make sense of it all.
