11 January2013

That's the date my life began to slowly change from chaotic, unmanageable and downright dangerous to the calm and joyful place where I am today. I can't believe how far I've come in a few short months, but I'm loving it! It says in the Big Book you will begin to see miracles... I read that very early on and grasped at the words with desperate hands and I promise you, it has come to pass! The fact that I sit here at 7.53am GMT feeling contented and filled with a spirit which overflows out of me (to the point that I am constantly smiling at myself!) is indeed a miracle.
If you are very new - keep having faith in what you hear at meetings, what you read in the literature and follow these wise suggestions, because I can assure you personally that "it works if you work it".
Have a fantastic day everyone,
I wish you the joy and happiness, contentment and inner peace - which AA promises you - and which WILL be your experience too. This is not an idle promise!

Thanks

The way my addiction works is that it tells me I'm really clever, and can actually tell other people how to live their lives, that I can in fact 'guide' people through their problems..... ....while the reality is I am weak and defenceless, frightened and ill prepared for life - and that's what brought me to my knees. I learn from this knowledge and self awareness that I must first take care of my own recovery and trust in God that I shall be guided to handle only the things that I can manage. (I can just about cope with my own life in other words!)
So, fellow addicts, I shall TRY not to let my ego run riot and start to think i am something I am not!
Glad to be here, clean and sober.
