"What used to be my mess is now my message"

Group of people standing in a circle showing support

When we attend meetings, we look for similarities and stories that we can relate to. The little voice in my head often tells me I don’t need to go to a meeting because I am too tired. The voice is a warning signal that I need to go. Oftentimes, I find there is something at the meeting I needed to hear. It works both ways. You never know when your story will “hit home” with someone that may be struggling. What used to be my mess is now my message. We must continue to work our program and work on ourselves. We can achieve and maintain sobriety by taking life “one day at a time.”

Everyday Habits for Successful Recovery- Part 1

Planting a seed into the ground

1. Pray/meditate – Try putting your shoes, phone, or keys under your bed at night so in the morning you must get on your knees to retrieve them and will already be on your knees for prayer.

2. Attend a meeting – Usually when you don’t want to go to a meeting is when you should. Try implementing 90 meetings in 90 days to obtain a regular routine. Attending the same meeting within that 90 days will help start building your support system/community.

3. Read recovery literature – There’s copious amounts of options for literature to choose from. It’s never a bad idea to read something inspirational to start or end your day.

Assortment of school supplies

Thank you for supporting School Supply Drive

As you know, service work is part of our recovery. In our Chapter Meetings and at our events, alumni are expressing a strong desire to pay it forward. This year for our community service project we collected school supplies for our local school children. Thanks to all that donated items! It’s such a joy to know kids can start school well-equipped. Please let me know your ideas for upcoming service projects.
