RECOVERY



“There is a destiny that makes us brothers, none goes his way alone. All that we send into the lives of others come back into our own.”

— Edwin Markham
I can remember when I felt so isolated and alone. I used to look at people talking with their friends, families playing in the park, lovers holding hands, and I felt so different and awkward. I always looked at life from the outside. I was the guy without an invitation to the party. The symptoms of addiction!

Today I know that my actions and behavior around alcohol reinforced these negative and destructive feelings. By my drinking I was perpetuating the painful disease in my life.

Sobriety led me into fellowship with others; it brought me into the family of recovering people. Today I am not alone. I have over a million brothers and sisters living a day at a time in a spiritual program. I have countless thousands finding joy, peace and serenity in sister programs. Today I belong in this world.

O God, thank You for giving me the need to give so that I might receive.
