The past several weeks have been nothing shy of a tremendous challenge for me, that I would not have survived if it had not been for my friends in the program.
I just got back from a meeting. It was a small meeting. One of those where you look around the room and wonder why you bothered to come there were so few people there, but I despratly needed a meeting so i stayed. Thank God I did.
Our AA bateries need recharging regularly. They have to be, otherwise we get run down. That's where I was when I finally got my but to a meeting. My intentions were good I planed on going each day I missed, but life had other plans for me.
The reality of this is that we need to remember the challenge placed befor us when we first came into this program. To what length are we willing to go to maintain our sobiety. Our conscious contact with God. We need each other the way a plant needs water. Our friends in the program are as inmportant to our sobriety as the book itself. Who else is going to pull us out of ourselves and put us back on track. Talk about a moment of Clarity.
