Daily Reflections #essentialsofrecovery

NO ONE DENIED ME LOVE

On the A.A. calendar it was Year Two … A newcomer appeared at one of these groups … He soon proved that his was a desperate case, and that above all he wanted to get well. [He said], “Since I am the victim of another addiction even worse stigmatized than alcoholism, you may not want me among you.” 

–TWELVE STEPS AND TWELVE TRADITIONS, pp. 141-42

I came to you — a wife, mother, woman who had walked out on her husband, children, family. I was a drunk, a pill-head, a nothing. Yet no one denied me love, caring, a sense of belonging. Today, by God’s grace and the love of a good sponsor and a home group, I can say that — through you in Alcoholics Anonymous — I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother and a woman. Sober. Free of pills. Responsible. Without a Higher Power I found in the Fellowship, my life would be meaningless. I am full of gratitude to be a member of good standing in Alcoholics Anonymous.
