The message of our meetings

"The fact that we, each and every group, focus on carrying the message provides consistency; addicts cancount on us."
Basic Text, p. 64-65

Tales of our antics in active addiction may be funny. Stories of our bizarre reactions to life when using may be interesting. But they tend to carry the mess more than the message. Philosophical arguments on the nature of God are fascinating. Discussions of current controversies have their place - however, it's not at an NA meeting.

Those times when we grow disgusted with meetings and find ourselves complaining that "they don't know how to share" or "it was another whining session" are probably an indication that we need to take a good, hard look at how we share.

What we share about how we got into recovery and how we stayed here through practicing the Twelve Steps is the real message of recovery. That's what we are all looking for when we go to a meeting. Our primary purpose is to carry the message to the still-suffering addict, and what we share at meetings can either contribute significantly to this effort or detract greatly. The choice, and the responsibility, is ours.

Just for today: I shall share my recovery at an NA meeting.


First of all, I would like to share with you a couple of good news. Today, December 18th, 2007 is my third wedding anniversaries. And as a present to my beloved wife, this is what I got to say;

Special Woman In My Life

It's hard for me to find the words

That will very clearly say

How very much I love you

And how you're the meaning to each day.

I'm so very glad I found you

For, with all your gentleness

You have brought joy into my life

And untold happiness.

My life has been enriched

Since the time that I met you

For, in everything we share

I see a love that is so true.

I see a heart that always cares,

A nature that's so kind

Such a beautiful lady

Who I've been so fortunate to find

You make my heart beat faster

With you I am myself

And the love we share I treasure

For it is a love above all else.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! (Taking a bow - to a standing ovations) You're so kind! (Still bowing and bowing. Cat-calling and whistling are heard everywhere, interspersed with the the shout of, Bravo! Bravo!)

(Timidly.) Can I begin my Oscar's acceptance speech now? ;-)

Hi! This is a personal recovery blog. Everything I posts here are from my twisted addicted mind and/or just plain poorly written. If something around here belongs to you and you're one of those people who hates free PR, drop me a line and I'll pull it down or credit you in large bold letters with every "T" crossed and every "i" dotted with a heart - Honest! And also I have very, very few assets, so it's probably not worth your time to go the lawyer route. Thanks.
