EASY DOES IT #essentialsofrecovery



MEETINGS

I’m slipping when I’m willing to stay away from meetings.

~ Anonymous ~

Being in too big a hurry to get well can present problems for us. When we are in a hurry, our eyes focus on the destination, not the journey. We are anxious to get somewhere, rather than become something. The Fellowship is more like a sailboat than a power boat. The power that propels us is one we have no control over. The controls are somewhere else and the pilot is somebody else.

Meetings are not the means to an end. Meetings are an end themselves, a way of life. Each meeting is its own reward. We hear people talk of a meeting being one stone in the foundation of our recovery. If we have accumulated many of these stones, when temptation come our way, we will have built a good foundation to say no.

Since I am never cured, I remember that “When I want to go to a meeting, I can walk and when I don’t I should run.
