AA is a We Program
Hello ladies of GROW, my name is Allison and I am an alcoholic. Yesterday I celebrated 3 years of sobriety! I came into GROW on day 1, before I had even attended a f2f meeting, and have been grateful for you wonderful women every day since!
I’d like to suggest as our topic this week: AA Is a We Program, and what that means to each of us.
Reflecting back on the misery of my life before I got here, and the peace and happiness I have found over the past 3 years, I realize the part of the deviousness of my addiction was how it stripped away my relationships one by one, until no one was left. Alcoholism is a jealous disease, and it doesn’t tolerate competitors. I might (but most likely wouldn’t) be able to stay sober on my own – but it’s so much more fun to live in recovery with my friends!
And of course, we know that we have to give away what we get through this program in order to keep it!
I look forward to hearing what you have to say about this topic, or about what is affecting your sobriety today!
