I will play with my dogs, my granddaughter, and sometimes I'll play a video game.

Well, I'm going to start sounding like a Big Book thumper here...

Going to meetings has meant that I rarely hear my addictive voices (and 321, you know I have trouble with "voices"). I'm unemployed right now, which is bad on our budget but good for my recovery--it isn't inconvenient for me to go to meetings every day. So today, there is a noon meeting. I went to town and got a haircut (no more dope-addict hairdo), and went to the meeting which was really good today. This open meeting is held at the Community Church. The chairperson reads approved literature and calls on people to speak, then we close with the Lord's prayer. It was my first local meeting out of detox, but I would consider NA my home group. Which brings up another point: last night's NA meeting was okay, but there was some politics at the end. AA and NA are not museums of perfect people, by any means.

I would go so far as to say that meetings have kept me sober.
