It’s really important for me to make sobriety number one on my priority list. And because AA is the only thing that’s ever kept me sober, it stands to reason that I’ve got to settle into AA as a lifelong home. I have seen many people do this in many different ways. Some people go to many meetings, roundups and conferences. Other people hold multiple service commitments. Some people twelve-step or sponsor a lot of individuals and make that the core of their program. Over time, these areas of focus can change for a person, and long-term sobriety becomes an unexpected journey. It doesn’t really matter how a person settles in. It matters a lot that somehow he finds a way to connect and stay connected for a lifetime.
