Reflection: Just For Today –May 21 Keep Coming Back

“Meetings keep us in touch with where we’ve been, but more importantly, with where we could go in our recovery.” Basic Text pg. 56

“We don’t stop being addicts after we’ve been clean awhile. We still need to identify with other addicts. We continue coming to NA meetings to keep in touch with who we are, where we’ve come from, and where we’re going. Every meeting reminds us that we can never use drugs successfully. Every meeting reminds us that we’ll never be cured, but that by practicing the principles of the program we can recover. And every meeting offers us the experience and example of other addicts in ongoing recovery.

At meetings, we see how different people work their program, and the results are apparent in their lives. If we want the lives we see others living, we can find out what they’ve done to get where they are. Narcotics Anonymous meetings offer us identification with where we’ve been and where we can go—identification we can’t do without and can’t get anywhere else. That keeps us coming back.

Just for Today: I will attend an NA meeting to remind myself of who I am, where I’ve come from, and where I can go in my recovery.
