My life in recovery has been full of exciting, changing and challenging times. The Program provides many opportunities to gather together as there are local conferences, dinners, picnics, speaker events, not to mention Area Assemblies, Regional Assemblies, and once a year in New York a World Conference . There is much to enjoy in the Program and it’s all available because we have found sobriety. Wherever we gather, under all these different events – one thing is clear – laughter will be heard, smiles will be evident and happiness will be present in the rooms of A.A. I am truly blessed.
