A couple of Sundays ago, a gentleman engaged me in conversation while waiting on the bus. The subject turned to church attendance. He said he doesn't go to church because he's an alcoholic and knows he'll go to the liquor store right after if he went. My immediate thought went to "You'll never know what will happen if you go". That ended up being my response to him. Since then, the idea of taking the step in the right direction despite the likelihood of veering off has weighed heavily on your humble blogger's mind. The above quote sums up the reason why. No matter what holds you back from doing what's beneficial for you, that first step can orient you towards positive change.
