Sometimes doing the right thing requires dropping activities with a selfish end or of lesser importance, without regret, and without self-pity.
My life is exceptionally full of high-value activities and has been stripped of many 'normal' activities with a selfish end or of lesser importance, and is vastly richer for it.
What is so important that I allow God to have it supplant other activities? Helping other alcoholics in trouble. If we do not, often no one else can.
