We Are Common People

We join hands at the end of our meetings to “say” that we never have to do this thing called recovery, alone. There will always be someone there to share the trials, tribulations, and joys of recovery from alcoholism. This is a “we” program. I cannot get and stay sober alone – but together we can – and do! I cannot begin to count the number of people I have met through recovery meetings, conferences, and assemblies of many sorts. There continues to be new Fellowships rising up all the time.

  1. So true…but the egoic illusion of separation, of isolation, of uniqueness condemned me to a lonely, desperate path.
    Then you said, come, you may, if you wish, join us, do as we do and you will need never be alone again.
    Naturally, I would not, I could not…but fascinated I returned to watch.
    You made me feel welcome, asking nothing of me, and then one day the miracle was evident, even to me.
    Grateful for the Gift

    We could wish to be moral, we could wish to be philosophically comforted, in fact, we could will these things with all our might, but the needed power wasn’t there. BB, p.45
    Another great fact: we all struggle: our connection to one another is our common ground, in and itself.

    It’s a good evening to have a good evening.
