I brought nothing but pain to that first meeting. When a newcomer comes to our room for the first time, I want to be there to listen to their story. I want to say, "I know how you feel," and I want to share my experience, strength, and hope. I need to be with like-minded people who accept me where I am, and who love me unconditionally, because I am God's child, trying to live our program one day at a time.
To Al-Anon, my sponsor, and my Higher Power, thank you for all these lessons.
The "Thoughts of the Day" are from members of various 12 step programs. Some are A.A., some Al-Anon, and some Adult Children of Alcoholics. Take what you need and leave the rest!
