todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I got to get out of my little comfort zone yesterday and attend a meeting that I've never been to before. I went specifically to hear a sponsee tell his story of recovery.
One more notch on my recovery belt.
that I'm a fan of the Traditions of A.A. and attend a meeting that discusses them. I also attended an excellent workshop this past weekend where small breakout groups of 2 or 3 went through each tradition thoroughly. It was sponsored by our local District 20. It saddens me to witness so many people (especially on Facebook) routinely violate the very traditions that have saved our lives. Some of these people seem to think that "they know better" and have actually cursed (as recently as last night) at me for trying to uphold different traditions. That does not stop me from being true to A.A. and myself, however.
that I don't have to use 2 hands to hold a cup of coffee anymore (during my last years of drinking, that was common)
