"You can't give away what you don't have." - Chad D.
WAKE UP BEFORE YOU SPEAK UPHave you ever been in a meeting where the topic is a particular
step and an addict raises their hand to share and says, "I have
never practiced this step, but this is my opinion"? It may sound
strange, but I wanted 10 years clean in my first 30 days. In no
way am I suggesting that addicts should not share. I am only
encouraging that we share our experience. Our hope. Our strength.
Addicts with one day clean can help other addicts by sharing how
they got that one day clean. Experience is the empathy that opens
the door. Strength is the ability stand strong. Hope is what
keeps us coming back. It is one's personal experience that
touches another's heart. A wino in the gutter may not be able to
get himself out, but he may be able to tell me how to stay out.
