Getting started in Recovery

I have been going to AA for 22 days. I am amazed every single meeting I go to how I am not alone in my struggles and inspirations! I attended NA around 20 years ago and didn't really work the program and was back out after a couple years of sobriety. Perhaps, I was not ready at that point in my life to completely surrender to the program..
