"Everybody has a message. Some have a message I do not want." -
Amir M.


STICK WITH THE WINNERS
I enjoy sports. I would have loved to have been able to play
professional baseball. It is easy for me to determine who the
winners in a ball game are. All I need to do is look at the box
score when the game is over. In recovery, I was told if you did
not use today, you are a winner. It was shared that the members
who came early to meetings, and stayed late, had a much better
chance of not using. I noticed that professional baseball players
practiced before every game. Once I started being more aware of
what was happening before the meeting, I stopped taking the
meetings for granted. Somebody opened the door. Somebody made the
coffee. Somebody set out the literature. They were practicing
recovery. They were the winners. I decided I wanted to be
somebody.

“Although there may be tragedy in your life, there's always a
possibility to triumph. It doesn't matter who you are, where you
come from. The ability to triumph begins with you; always.” -

"How come if drugs kill millions of brain cells, they never
killed the ones that made me want to use?" - Don N.


RELASPE IS NOT A REQUIREMENT
My clean date is December 25, 1981. I did not stop using on my
own. The city police arrested me, along with my disease. I was
tired, and although I did not enjoy being arrested, I did feel a
sense of relief. I was still under the influence, because once I
heard the police knocking on the door, I immediately used what I
had. I heard in a meeting a few months later: “when it is over,
it is over”. I feel blessed to have not relapsed since coming
into recovery. Maybe I am too scared, or maybe it is just over
for me. I was 27 years old when I stopped using drugs. I wanted
to quit using for long time. I made numerous attempts, only to
fall short. My relapses were all before I ever got to my first
meeting. It is true; follow these simple suggestions and you will
never have to use again.

"Justice that love gives is surrender. Justice that law gives is
punishment" - Mahatma Gandhi
