- that locally we have a lot of AA birthdays in August. Why anyone chose such a warm month to get sober is beyond me. I waited until it was cooler. Just sayin'.
- that the program taught me when I entered that I wasn't flawed, I had a disease
- that I have a life of privilege many do not get to experience
- that we are all healers when we offer our hand
In recovery, we can more easily forgive ourselves for past actions when we realize they came out of a misguided attempt to meet basic needs. A starving person will seek out garbage. Starved as we were for necessities of life, we sought a form of garbage. The good news in AA recovery is that sobriety will help us meet basic needs in the right way. ~Walk in Dry Places
