Stepping forward towards freedom from this fatal disease isn’t as impossible when shared with others in our Fellowship – leaning into faith and trusting in a Higher Power can make all the difference.
It’s taken me a long time to recognize the signs and to face who I am and how my choices have impacted myself and those around me, but taking these 12 Steps has been essential in gaining the clarity that I need in order to stay sober.
When times get tough, it is motivating to hear of other members’ stories; they remind us that we are never alone in this journey. Through this Fellowship there is hope, because we understand each other with compassion and care as we continue on our paths towards a greater sense of self-awareness.
Coming together for mutual progress is an invaluable source of strength when embracing change can seem so daunting. Even if we stumble along the way, the space of the group setting gives us courage to share our true feelings.
I am grateful for having a place to connect and to take meaningful action towards freedom from addiction.
