Attraction rather than promotion - So I don’t mean to spread some AA propaganda or say it is the only way. However I can honestly say that looking back at my sobriety (14 months tomorrow) the quality of my sobriety has been way better when I have gone regularly to meetings, working the steps and been part of the fellowship.
This morning I woke up again with black clouds and I texted a fellow sister. She said: What’s up? I said that I am off track from my program of recovery and my higher power, off track from the fellowship. She said: happens to me too and then I think of a banana A banana I said? She responded, ”yes cause a banana lost from the bunch may get skinned”. I still didn’t quite get it so she sent me the link above. I sat on my balcony in the sunshine this morning and listened to that share. Wow, it is so powerful!
Yes I am currently a banana lost from the bunch. I may have been skinned at times lately but not eaten I am still sober but in a vulnerable place where each day is like flipping a coin.
Tonight I am going back to the fellowship of AA for dinner with the ladies and then a meeting. No debate - smart feet! I may be a lost banana but I can find my way back to the bunch
There are tons of powerful messages in the posted link so if you have 1h15min it is in my opinion time worth spent.
“If we fail to be grateful, we may loose the gift of sobriety. But if we are truly grateful, we take care of the gift”
Sobriety is a gift and I am truly grateful!
