When I look back to one year ago, I never imagined my life would be the way it is today.Find out more
I enjoyed looking in books I’d not visited for a while and although I didn’t use most of the passages I read, it was good for my own recovery to read them! The story of Bill W’s own spiritual awakening and how the room ‘lit up’, was something I always heard members mention in my own early days and along the way I’ve had my own experiences, where there was not necessarily big balls of light, but it was like someone turned the TV set to colour from black and white – another marker in my recovery to remember my progress.
My final flicking of pages took me to The Promises. I didn’t hear or read about them for a while in AA but when I did – Wowser! It was like someone had perfectly described my own drinking journey and the change that did and was yet to happen! My whole life had baffled me. I had struggled to navigate it as an adult and childhood had just been a maze of wrong turns. The Promises sum up for me the journey of recovery. I think as a newcomer they can seem like the impossible but once you are on that journey and those moments of change start to happen, it all begins to make sense.
