THIS MONTH'S GUEST SPEAKER: "James E."

My name is James and I'm an addict.
I thought I had to use to survive.
I always thought I was too screwed up to have a choice in the matter.
I finally reached out and found recovery.
Some old timers in another fellowship suggested I go to NA.
I went to a meeting and put my hand up.
I got a meeting list with phone numbers.
I kept coming back and found out that there are some suggestions for people who want to stay clean.
AVOID PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS YOU USED WITH OR AT
COME EARLY AND STAY LATE
DON' T USE AND GO TO MEETINGS
GET AND USE A SPONSOR
GET A HOME GROUP
KEEP COMING BACK, IT WORKS
90 MEETINGS IN 90 DAYS
USE THE PHONE
The suggestions are what got me clean.
They are also the actions behind the First Step.
I found out after being clean a while that what got me clean, keeps me clean.
I got clean on May 10, 1987.
Haven' t used since.
Thank you for letting me share.
