     When I came into the program, I did not know what these sins are virtues were.  I figured they were something bad that God said not to do.  I'm come to learn that there is a lot more to it than that.  These are things that will get me a whole lot of hurt.  If I get to prideful, then I'm teachable.  I believe that I can do it all on my own, and that I made it this far on my own.  This would be lie!  If I coveting ill feelings, that wrong things, or others peoples significant others, I open myself up to a wide world of insanity!  Lust...well, that one goes without saying.  Anger, whew!  Anger and resentment will put me right back where I came from quick!  Gluttony, this one varies depending on which program your in.  If your in OA, "Can you say STEPS?".  Envy, if I go around envying everybody and what they have physically, mentally, intuitively, materialistically, then I am not grateful for what I have!  Slothfulness, if I lay back and don't give it away to keep it, I will loose it!  My Higher Power definitely had something good in mind when He showed me these things to stay far away from.  I don't want insanity in my life today, I want peace and serenity.  The only way to get that is to have guidelines that I live by.  For me, these work!  I have a lot more, but these are definitely high on the list!
