todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
for the 12 steps
that A.A. offers me a wonderful design for living
to know that sobriety does not give me instant manageability; there's alot of work required
for questions from non-alkies who are curious about recovery. I was asked why I still go to meetings. The simple answer is so I can stay sober. But it's really much more than that.
I go to meetings ...
... to learn more about recovery
... to be reminded of everything I have already forgotten about recovery
... to help others with my experience, strength and hope
... because all of my friends are in recovery
... what else would I do? Stay home?
Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
