Find a meeting

Roundabout April 2024

Roundabout Magazine April 2024

Editorial

As the Serenity Prayer tells us, “accept the things we cannot change” - this is probably something I repeat to myself every day at some point! It comes in handy in so many situations: when something does not go my way; my train is late; the weather is bad; plans are cancelled or I just don’t feel well. Throughout our April issue of Roundabout we hear from several members who have experienced illness during sobriety and how important the Fellowship has been to them during these times.

When I hear of members in AA going through tough times, it always reminds me that we need to keep coming to meetings during the bad, but also the good - this ensures we have something ‘in the bank’ for when life is throwing tougher times at us. I also know that if I am struggling, I will probably be the last one to notice and hopefully my friends in AA will sooner than me!

Please remember though you do not need to stick to these themes for your articles - but some members do find they help for constructing articles.
