A.A. Offers Much

Recovery has blessed me with so much more than sobriety.  I have purpose and direction in my life today.  A.A. affords me many opportunities to be of service to others.  That was one of the attractions to A.A. for me. I could get as involved as I wanted.  Sometimes that means just attending meetings and working with a sponsor.  Other times that can be as a “trusted servant” in support of my Fellowship; or at District or Area levels.  There are Conferences that need support as well as Assemblies, not to mention both Region and World Services.  There are many ways to serve.  I have found that service enhances my personal recovery.  We each choose for ourselves how we want to define our own recovery program.  Some choose to be of service and others choose to keep their program simple. Sobriety has truly been a gift that grows with time.  I came searching for a way out of the pain, and I not only found that but I also found a whole new world, filled with friends, and those I have come to call my “Family”

  1. Being of service is an important part of my recovery. Giving it away is how I keep it. Sometimes service is as simple as putting away a few chairs after the meeting.

  2. AA’s pretty tricky.
    It teaches us to love.
    I see the Masters hand everywhere.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and devoted twelve stepper.

  3. Top of the morning family,
    – We shall be with you in the Fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the Road of Happy Destiny. BB, p.164
    – To watch people recover, to see them help others, to watch loneliness vanish, to see a fellowship grow up about you, to have a host of friends — this is an experience you must not miss. BB, p.89

    Not a bad offer, Two fellowships for the price of One!
    It’s my responsibility to keep this connection healthy / clean.
    It’s a good day to have a good day.
